Assessment philosophy

  • Students will receive grades that are based upon multiple forms of assessment such as tests, quizzes, projects, reports, collaborative work, presentations, laboratory reports and writing assignments.
  • Teachers will explain how grades will be determined at the beginning of the course and with each assignment.
  • Assessment practices will measure the extent to which a student has attained the standards of the course.
  • Students will have many opportunities to produce work they can take pride in and, at the teacher's discretion, opportunities will be given for self-correction and resubmission of work.
  • Students will have the opportunity to know which test items they missed and why their answers were unacceptable.
  • Students will receive ample feedback to know how well they are doing and whether they should make changes in what they are doing.
