Students will be allowed to retake summative assessments based on the following conditions:
- Students can retake a summative assessment regardless of score.
- The maximum score resulting from any retake is 100%.
- Students may only retake each summative assessment one time.
- Retakes may be taken with teacher discretion of what the student needs to complete:
- This will allow a child to retake only the topics that he/she has demonstrated a need to strengthen. Under this option, the student’s retake grade will replace his/her original score.
- Teacher discretion should be used if students must have completed all classwork and homework assignments in order to retake a summative assessment.
- Students may be asked to complete the “Retake Learning Plan” in order to retake a summative assessment.
- The retake assessment must be different in questions but equal in rigor. The structure of the assessment may change at the teacher’s discretion. Example: multiple choice exam to essay or multiple choice exam to student interview.
- Formative assessments (quizzes) are available for retake at the teacher’s discretion.
Time and Responsibility Factors:
- Student must retake the summative assessment within two schedule cycles from the day the original summative assessment was handed back to the student (IEP students—refer to IEP).
- Teacher may vary deadline due to extenuating circumstances- student absences, schedule conflicts, etc.
- Students must make arrangements with the teacher as to when and where they will retake the summative assessment. Students are required to take initiative for their learning process.
- Students will complete tutoring/conference session(s) with the teacher prior to retaking the summative assessment. The student may be required to complete additional assignments that are given at the teacher’s discretion in order to prepare students for the assessment. Students are encouraged to use the tutoring center to supplement the teacher conference and/or additional requirements.
