Due to Story Presentations, 

there will not be a Weekly Wrap-Up Quiz this week, 


you are still required to do this week's SSR report 

sometime before Monday June 5th.

Weekly SPRING SSR Reports 2017

IF you have COMPLETED the requirements in Independent Reading (SSR) for the trimester,

you may go ahead and complete the FINAL report early.


you will still need to continue to read until the end of the tri,

and you will still need to complete weekly SSR reports on that reading.


This is where you will report on TWO of the books meeting the criteria in the requirements

as your FINAL SUMMATIVE for Independent Reading.

You only get to submit ONE time, so make sure you are ready if you are doing this early.

You do NOT need to scroll down further, 
unless you are making up a quiz or report from being absent.

Missed a Friday SSR Update, Book or Short Story Reviews, or any online quiz or test?  
(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. 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.
  • 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 before it is too late. 
  • Summative Assessments - 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.
