GHS Math Department Grading Guidelines

Grafton High School Math Department Grading Guidelines

There are three categories of assessments:

  • Formative Assessments (0% of grade)
    • Formative assessments are the first time practice on a new standard.

    • Formative assessments will not be part of your academic grade. 

    • Formative assignments will be posted on the board and/or on website.

    • All assignments are expected to be done the next day (unless told otherwise).

       

  • Benchmarks Assessments (40% of grade)
    • Graded homework assignments (paper/Math XL) that are not first time practice 

    • Homework Checks/“Mini-quiz” once a week covering previous content

    • Math XL homework - % taken at mid-unit quiz and/or the conclusion of a chapter

    • Mid-unit quizzes (will be announced at least 1 day in advance).

    • Projects/Reports

 

  • Summative Assessments (60% of grade)
    • Unit tests (will be announced at least 2 days in advance) 

    • Projects/Reports

       

    • Corrective Assessments – Following unit tests, a corrective assessment may be taken to replace the original summative assessment score; however, students who earn a C- or below are required. The following criteria must be met:

      • Every assignment in the unit must be completed ( ≥ 90% accuracy) before you can start test corrections.

      • Corrections must be made on previous assessments (quizzes & test).

      • Have a conference with your teacher.

      • Additional teacher-determined assignments may be assigned.

      • A parent signature may be required.

      • All of these must be met within a teacher-determined timeline (usually a week).

      • Summative Projects/Reports are not eligible for corrective assessments
