Grading Guidelines

  • The student will have one opportunity to improve any cumulative test or project grade 69 or below.
  • This will be accomplished by completing a test or project covering the same objective/skill.
  • After the original test is returned to the student, the student will have “two school days” to request the reassessment. The student must return the original graded test to the teacher.
  • The due date for the assignment or the retake of the test will be determined by the teacher.
  • The higher grade of the two “tests/projects” will be recorded with a passing grade of 70 being the maximum number of points earned. (example: if a student receives a grade of 70 or above on the retake, a grade of 70 will be recorded)
