Assessment Remediation Plan (only for major tests!!!)

-utilize directed study or lunch periods to re-teach or discuss the material one-on-one as needed.

-re-take policy for major tests (unit/summative assessments)

                -Original score = A then complete 1 of the following activities prior to taking a re-test

                -Original score = B then complete 2 of the following activities prior to taking a re-test

                -Original score = C then complete 3 of the following activities prior to taking a re-test

                -Original score = D or below then complete 4 of the following activities prior to taking a re-test

                -the re-test must be attempted within 1 week of the original test date (this may be adjusted as needed)

                -you must let me know when this will be taken…5th period (lunches B-C-D) is the best option
