Nothing But The Truth Summative Assessment


Then...

Do one more SSR report. 

This is NOT a final where you have to pick one book and go in depth. Because you had to return your library books, we are not doing a final final.  I will just look at your regular reports and the notes I've taken on Mondays for your Independent Reading grade.  AND I will look at this last report.

(Scroll down for information about missed work and retakes. Links are provided below the information.)

Friday SSR Reports: 
  • Used to monitor Independent Reading progress and to assess reading skill.
  • Done in class every Friday - One Main Report to monitor progress, then sometimes an individual in-depth Skill Report
  • If absent, do it as soon as you can - either from home or as soon as you get back to school. The links for these will remain unlocked, but will be timestamped.
  • I check reports on Fridays, and print out a master report the last Friday of each month and at the end of the trimester.
  • It is your responsibility to to make these up in a timely manner. If you haven't submitted your update by the time I run the report, it will be too late to make it up.
  • Scroll down to find out when SSR Skill Reports were given.

Friday Weekly Wrap-Up Quiz:
  • Used to assess the big ideas from the week
  • Done in class every Friday (or Thursday on short weeks).
  • If absent, YOU will have to make arrangements with me to make these up. Make-ups on these will usually be done after school, but other arrangements can be made. The links to these assessments will not work until your scheduled make-up time.
Assessments:
  • Formative Assessments - Quizzes, in class work, weekly reports - can NOT be RE-taken. These are meant to be a measure of your skill AS you learn. You will continually have formative practice and measures leading up to a summative assessment.
  • Formative Assessments need to be made up before the summative assessment is given for a unit. It is YOUR responsibility to make arrangements with me before it is too late. 
  • Summative Assessments - Most End of Unit Tests - can be RE-taken if student has demonstrated active participation in learning the material. Summative Assessments measure the Sum of what one has learned through formative practice. It is given after you have had ample opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills being assessed. Since learning is active, a second chance to prove skill is reserved for students who have actively participated in learning and completed all required practice. Make arrangements with Mrs. Collins if you qualify to retake any summative that allows re-takes.
