Pine Forest Elementary 2014-15
Grading Policies for 3rd,4th, & 5th Grades
Pine Forest Elementary follows the district grading guidelines, as outlined in page 30-31 of the Humble ISD Student/Parent Handbook.
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. In an effort for the student’s work to reflect mastery of the content presented in the assignment, no more than 10 total points will be deducted for late work.
Re-teaching and Reassessment:
The intent of Humble Independent School 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 teacher 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.
