1. READ THIS: 


Every week, you will do an "SSR Report" on the Choice Novel you are reading.


We will do them in class on Fridays, unless there is a weird week or we are taking a SUMMATIVE on a Friday. If we do not have time to do it in class during a week, or you are absent when we did it in class, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING SURE YOU DO IT ON YOUR OWN BEFORE THE FOLLOWING WEEK STARTS.


2. CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW, and fill out your first SSR report!



FIRST SSR Report of the year!


3. READ THIS: 

Every week, you will take a Weekly Wrap-Up Quiz  (WWQ). This quiz will cover the things we learned for that week. Today's quiz covers the first 3 weeks of school, and really isn't so much about skill. Just remembering some things. :)  Normally, your score from the WWQ goes into the grade book, Today's won't, but rather will become part of your overall participation daily points.


4. CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW to take your first Weekly Wrap-Up Quiz.

(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.
