Please note my grading policy: I will be grading based off students meeting standards using formative and summative assessments.  There are approximately 66 Standards established for each English class.  As a  result, our scoring and grading practices have changed. We no longer score assignments; we score standards.  The difference is that we are  scoring a very specific skill or cognitive task. Students earn one of four possible scores for their skill or understanding. Scores that are summative have more weight than formative (practices) because summatives are where students should be displaying mastery of a skill.

Retake/Revision Policy:Students may revise formal formative writing pieces as well as summative assessments that ARE NOT discussion based.
