Assessment grades will be calculated differently.
This trimester we will focus on students attaining a deep understanding of each learning target. In order to achieve this, students will be given two opportunities to show their understanding of each learning target.
The first opportunity will be on the learning target Math Simulator. Students will receive feedback on each simulator assessing their current level of understanding on a scale from 1-6. Please see the chart below.
The second opportunity will be on the unit/chapter exam. The unit/chapter exam will be divided into sections, each one covering a different learning target. At this time students will receive a grade for each learning target, which can replace their quiz grade. Below is the assessment grading rubric:
This is how we grade all of our assignments, trying to show mastery of the current learning target. It is important to show your thinking.Students are even asked to assess their own understanding of the learning targets, and this goes into their grade.If you want me to change a grade because you now understand the learning target, you just have to let me know :)____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________All students:
