Opportunity for Success – GRADE RECOVERY POLICY
Each time your child completes a test or quiz, your child will have the opportunity to improve their grade by completing corrections on parts of the assessment that were missed. By completing these corrections accurately, your child will earn half credit back on the assessment.
Grade Recovery/Retesting Policy for Hayes Elementary 4th/5th grade:
We believe that students should have more than one opportunity to demonstrate proficiency. Primary grade level standards and report cards lend themselves to providing multiple opportunities throughout the quarter. Intermediate practice is to allow students an opportunity to correct test and quiz items for partial credit. Students will have 5 school days after receiving an assessment to correct their errors along with a justification for their revised answers. Upon completion, students can receive half of the credit assigned to the problem.
|Examples of earning back HALF of unearned credit|
|If your child initially received:||Then they will receive HALF of this unearned credit:||Then he/she will now receive a:|
|70%||30% x 1/2||70% + 15 = 85%|
|50%||50% x 1/2||50% + 25 = 75%|
|38%||62% x 1/2||38% + 31 = 69%|
PLEASE READ THESE DIRECTIONS VERY CAREFULLY!
***IMPORTANT: In order to receive the half credit back,
EVERY incorrect response MUST be redone correctly with all work shown.
Your child should write these corrections/explanations on a separate piece of paper and attach to this test. Please Do NOT make corrections on the original quiz/test.
All students who are completing their grade recovery must complete the corrections AND have the parent signature.
These corrections are due back to your teacher exactly one week after the assessment was returned to your child.
Teachers will input grades and then send the assessment home
to be corrected and returned.
*There are no corrections allowed for spelling/vocabulary tests.*
