Hello, I'm Mr. Galloway. I'm very excited to be starting my third year here at Alburnett High School! I teach AP Calculus, Precalculus, and Algebra II.

Grading Practices

Grades represent an understanding of the Iowa CORE Mathematics Standards. Each assessment will be assessed based on the district-wide proficiency scale shown below.

Reassessments will be offered after each assessment, and the reassessment score will replace the original score. Typically, we will set a specific reassessment date a few days after the original assessment when anyone who wishes will come to my classroom during Pirate Time to reassess. I will continue to give students the opportunity to improve their proficiency level, but after the official reassessment, any further reassessment will be done on an individual basis.

The few days between the original assessment and the reassessment give students the time to earn the right to reassess by completing the following reassessment criteria:

  • Complete and understand all the homework assignments for the unit, and practice additional similar problems.
  • Fix any errors on their original assessment.
  • Come to Mr. Galloway's room for Pirate Time to get help on anything that's still tricky. (Student Pirate Time self-request form) -- Students, please bookmark this page!

Proficiency levels will be scaled in Powerschool as follows:

  • Fully Meets: A
  • Progressing: B
  • Developing: C or D
  • Limited Progress: F
  • No Evidence: Incomplete
