Math Assessments [formal quizzes and tests]
Questions will be labeled with the appropriate skill level. Students are expected to master Secure and Developing skills.
Here is the breakdown of scores:
o Secure [S] 5 points
o Developing/Secure [D/S] 4 points
o Developing [D] 3 points
o Beginning/Developing [B/D] 2 points
o Beginning [B] 1 point
Partial credit, as determined by the team of fifth grade math teachers, is awarded for certain items.
· Math tests only (not quizzes) with a score of 69% or lower may be retaken. The highest score that can be achieved on the retest is 70%. If new scores are lower than a 70%, then the higher score will be given. (i.e.: First test: 62; Second: 67; final score = 67%; The 62% will be discarded.)
o This practice is consistent with all fifth grade math classes. Please note that 70% is considered a passing grade. A test with a score of 70% or higher may not be retaken.
o Test retakes are given on Tuesday, Ms. LaMarra’s after school help day. (Help Day is subject to change.)
Math grades for each marking period consist of the following percentages:
- End-of-unit assessments (tests): 60%
- Mid-unit assessments (quizzes and other): 25%
- Homework: 5%
- Work Habilts/Study Skills: 10%
Keep up with homework.
Study and practice daily.
