Naming convention

Naming convention

  • Our naming convention:

    • Type – Assessment – Weight – Concept

      • S – Quiz (1x) – Time and Calendar

      • F – Exit Ticket (0x) – Bar Graph

    • Homework

      • Homework – 9/17-9/21


Now what in tarnation does that mean

Now, what in Tarnationdoes that mean?


The first part

The first part

Type – Assessment – Weight – Concept

S – Quiz (1x) – Time and Calendar

  • “S” = Summative Assessments

  • “F” = Formative Assessments


Assessments

Assessments

  • Diagnostic Assessment: Occurring PRIOR to learning that is used to identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses.

  • Formative Assessment: Occurring DURING the learning that is used to adapt instruction

    • Students use to determine their current progress.

  • Summative Assessment: Occurring AFTER the learning that documents how much learning has occurred at a point in time.


Summative assessments

Summative Assessments

You’ll see grades for all assessments entered (F, S, Homework)

Only Summative Assessments count towards the report card letter grade.

Any assessment that is weighted twice (2x) is subject to retake if student does not score a 2+ or higher (the standard).


The second part

The Second Part

Type – Assessment and Weight – Concept

S – Quiz (1x) – Time and Calendar

  • “Quiz (1x)”

  • “Test may be weighted (2x)”

  • “Exit Ticket (0x)”

      • They are seen in the reporting categories

  • Summative – Only summative assessments will be weighted.

    • End of unit tests and cumulative projects may be weighted“2x”

    • Quizzes and detailed class assignments are weighted “1x.”

    • A small/minor summative assessment may be weighted “0.5x.”

  • Letter Grades

    • An average of all weighted assessments

    • The “heavier” the weight the more the grade “counts” in the average


Grades

Grades

3 – Meets the standard

Comments too

Comments too

In short

In short

Grades on report cards come from the average of Summative Assessments

Formative assessments tell parents how well concept is understood so far

Routine is the same for each subject area


Kindergarten

Kindergarten

  • Year end goals

  • Kindergarten is developmental progress

  • Rubric for progress

    • Posted on Kindergarten website

Have a question about a grade

Have a question about a grade?

  • First step, talk with your child about the assignment seen in the Parent Portal.

    • Ask if they studied the information.

    • Ask if they completed a retake.

  • Second step, wait for the assignment to come home in backpack/folders.

  • Third step, communicate concerns with the teacher.
