For Literacy and Social Studies you will see two separate grades for your child. Each of these grades will consist of averages from the following weighted categories:
Academic Responsibility- 10%
Formative Practice- 70%
Summative Assessment- 20%
Assignments that may be found under academic responsibility include: participation, attitude, turning assignments in on time, etc. This is a grade that can not be made up. This is why it is only weighted at 10 percent.
Formative Practice is worth 70 percent of your child’s grade because this is where we will be spending the most of our time learning. The scores on activities in this section will drive my classroom instruction and will serve as a map to success. Grades in this area may be re-done if that is determined to be necessary. Please see the redo policy below for more information.
Summative Assessments are worth 20 percent of your child’s grade. This is where you fill find tests, final projects, completed essays, and other large assignments. These may also be re-done if necessary.
** You may see two scores for some assignments (one in Academic Responsibility and the other in Formative or Summative). This is because the timely completion will be a non-negotiable grade. If your student needs to redo an assignment, their changed grade will be found in the second category.
** It is the responsibility of each student to work towards improvement of his or her grade. If your student has not met a score of 70% or better on a graded assignment, it should be redone. I give students several chances on most assignments to reach a score of 70% with your help at home. If a student scores a 70% on an assessment test, and would like to raise their overall grade they may redo the assignment once.
It is the responsibility of each student to work towards improvement of his or her grade. Students will receive letter grades in the subject area this year. Here is the scoring reference:
