Testing will take place at the end of each lesson and each unit. Testing will be both formative and summative. However, the type of tests will vary, such as: traditional tests, projects, lab reports, written or oral reports, and summaries.
Students will be able to make corrections on test for 75% credit. For example, if a students earn 12/20 on a test. The student can correct the eight questions missed and earn up to six points for a new score of 18/20. Open book tests, lab reports, written or oral reports, and summaries may not be corrected.
Spelling pretests will be given on Mondays and posttests will be on Fridays. The posttests will be over ONLY the words that the students missed on the pretest and the etymology list. The etymology portion of the test will be cumulative and will be matching. (Spelling lists are available online under the "Links" tab of this webpage.)
