While it is in a student's best interest to reach proficiency before the end of the unit, I recognize that some students take longer to learn the material than others. Policies regarding student-initiated reassessment are as follows:
- The student must see me to discuss the situation as soon as possible and schedule a reassessment appointment within five school days after the scores on the unit's standards have been entered into Infinite Campus.
- If a student has missing work that applies to the standard on which he/she wants a reassessment, the student must complete that missing work before I will grant a reassessment opportunity.
- Students will be asked to fill out a Learning Reflection form so they can analyze what work habits and study techniques need to improve to maximize learning in the future.
- Generally, reassessment appointments will be held after school.
- Appointments are testing situations and must be taken seriously, or the student will be asked to leave. Students who fail to show up for their appointments will not be given a second appointment.
- I reserve the right to give an alternate version of the assessment. This typically will include oral questioning or having a student "teach me" in order to determine what the student has learned. I may also ask the student to come up with a reassessment method or ask them to do an alternate assignment or project to assess learning.
- The previous score will be replaced with the most recent score.
- If a student is requesting reassessment for every standard after the end of the unit, something is wrong. It is likely that a student is having learning problems or is having a problem with work habits. In these cases, the student, parent, and I need to conference to solve the larger problem.
