Grading Policies

RETEST/REDO POLICY

In accordance with EIA (local and legal) grading guidelines, a student who meets the criteria detailed below shall be permitted a reasonable opportunity to redo an assignment or retake a test for which the student received a failing grade. 

The following criteria should guide retest/redo practices.  

Summative Assessment

A student will be allowed one opportunity each grading period in each course to retake a test (Summative Assessment) for which he/she earned a failing grade (a grade below 70).

  • The highest grade a student can earn on a test retake will be a 70.  A student may not earn a grade lower than the original grade.
  • Prior to retesting, the teacher should require an intervening action (tutorial attendance, study group, test correction, etc.).

Relevant Application

A student will be allowed one opportunity each grading period in each course to redo a Relevant Application for which he/she earned a failing grade (a grade below 70).

  • The highest grade a student can earn on a redone relevant assessment will be a 70.  A student may not earn a grade lower than the original grade.

Checking for Understanding

A student will be allowed one opportunity to redo one daily grade or class assignment (Checking for Understanding) each grading period in each course for which he/she earned a failing grade (a grade below 70).

  • The highest grade a student can earn on a redo assignment will be a 70.  A student may not earn a grade lower than the original grade.

General Information:

  • The student/parent must request the retest/redo opportunity from the teacher within 5 days of the grade being posted on the Home Access Center.
  • Late work will not qualify for retest/redo.
  • The student who refuses to take the original test, complete the original assignment, or who purposefully marks random/incomplete answers is not eligible for retest/redo.  
  • All retest/redo assignments must be completed by the Thursday before the end of the grading period.  The student must be scheduled into Opportunity Lab prior to that Thursday.  
  • CBAs, Checkpoints, DPMs, and Benchmarks are not eligible for retest/redo opportunities. 

LATE WORK POLICY

It is always our expectation that students will complete and turn in all assignments within the timeline set by the teacher.

  • 5 points will be deducted from the grade each day the assignment is not turned in for a maximum of 20 points (4 days late).  If the assignment is not turned in by the 5th day, the grade is a zero.
  • Parent Communication of Late Work

In an effort to communicate late work concerns to parents, the student’s grade will reflect the grade earned plus .1 (example: grade earned 85%; grade recorded 85.1%).

 A “Z” in the grade book indicates that the assignment has not been turned in and the student still has the opportunity to complete the assignment. 

  • Late work will not be accepted during the final week (5 school days) of the grading period.
