Grading Policies for 3rd, 4th, & 5thGrades
PineForestElementary follows the district grading guidelines, as outlined in pages 29-32 of theHumble ISD Student/Parent Handbook.In addition, PFE has adopted the following grading policies for students in 3rd, 4th, and 5thgrades:
The actual grade reflecting the student’s relative mastery of an assignment will be recorded and averaged to determine the nine week grades.
Late Work Policy:
Assignments and tests must be completed and turned in on the assigned date in order to receive full credit. Any assignment not submitted upon the request of the teacher will be considered late work. Student grades will be deducted 10 points from the grade earned for the first day assignment is late.Each day following will receive five point deduction.A grade of zero (0) will be recorded if the completed assignment has not been turned in by the end of the fifth day.
Re-teaching and Reassessment:
The intent ofHumbleIndependentSchool District’s re-teaching re-assessment policy is to ensure that students have an opportunity to master the District’s curricular objectives. Re-teaching in the District may be integrated into lessons during guided practice and may be a part of the explanation phase when checking for understanding is done. The teacher will determine when re-teaching should be scheduled. For critical skills, it will be done immediately; for recurring skills, it may be deferred.
An entire class or group will be re-taught and reassessed when the teachers determines that half or 50% or more of the class have failed to perform at mastery level (70%). The higher of the two grades shall be recorded in the grade book for each class member.
After re-teaching, the teacher may use a variety of reassessment techniques to determine mastery. These techniques may include oral questioning, observation, retesting, demonstration, and additional assignment, or an alternative assignment. This applies to all forms of assessment. If a teacher chooses to retest individual to determine mastery,the higher of the two grades shall be used in calculating the grade cycle average.
