Grades 6 and 7 Grading Philosophies and Protocols

Grades 6 & 7 Grading Philosophy & Protocols

PMS students are able to retake summative assessments as determined by the teacher in order to increase student knowledge and skills if the grade is below an 80%.  The petition for a reassessment must be initiated within two school days after notification of grades and remediation must be completed before the end of the tenth school day.  Students, parents or teachers can initiate the request for a retake.  Prior to the retake, the student must complete required remediation steps as established by the teacher to demonstrate formative assessment of new learning and remediation of weaknesses.  The retake need only reassess the knowledge and skills that the student has not yet mastered.  The student will receive the higher of the two grades for grading purposes but not to exceed 80%.  Please be aware that in certain cases a re-assessment may not be feasible (group presentations, band concerts, final exams, etc.).
