  • Turnitin.com Instructions

    It is imperative for students to be aware of academic integrity, thus Turnitin.com is used to find plagiarism, grammar mistakes, and many other elements.

     

    Reassessment Contract

    This is the contract students fill out with their teacher before reassessing. It establishes why the student struggled, how to improve, and a timeline for reassessment. 

    New element: Students will have the opportunity for ONE reassessment and the meeting must take place within ONE week of receiving the assignment back - all assignments will be stamped with a date.  In addition, I (Chapman) reserve the right to say no to a reassessment opportunity. 

     

    How do students reassess?

    Students must fill out a Reassessment Contract (see above) within one week of recieving the graded  assessment.  After filling this out, the student will meet with me to discuss a plan for improvement and establish a timeline for reassessing.

    Students can meet with me before and after class, during independent work time in class, or during my office hours (Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri mornings from 7:15-7:40). 

     

    How do students recieve feedback for improvement?

    Students recieve feedback for improvement in a variety of ways depending on the assignment. These include, but are not limited to, written feedback, rubric feedback, whole class discussion feedback, student exemplars, and individual discussions.

    The most potent form of feedback comes through the reassessment contract process, where students conference one-on-one with their teacher.  This is where the most growth is seen, and as such, it is a vital part of the reassessment process.

    If your student is ever confused about why they recieved their grade, please encourage them to meet with me for a conference!
