Late Work, Missed Quizzes and Tests, and Earning Points Back
Late Work:  When your absence is excused, you may turn in late work for full credit.  Work must be turned in one block after your return for full credit.  For example, if you are out on Monday and return on Wednesday, then your work must be returned on Friday for full credit. If you have a long term absence, talk to me and we will set up a schedule.

When your absence is unexcused or when you do not meet the excused deadline, you have two weeks from the deadline to turn in the assignment for a reduction or 25 points.  After that time, your assignment will not be accepted, and a score of zero will be entered in the grade book.

Missed quizzes and tests:  Students missing quizzes and tests are given one week to make up the assignment without a reduction in points.  After that, 25 points are deducted from the total score.

Students are expected to take all quizzes and test on the date of the quiz/test unless prior arrangements are made.  An absence the prior block does not excuse you, since you have a unit planner with dates and all assignments are online.  If you come to class and refuse to take a test or quiz because you are unprepared, there will be a 10 point deduction in your score. After a week, the deduction, will be 25 points, not 35 points, just as if you had missed the quiz or test for an absence.

Points Back:  I do not give retakes, but I do give some points back on quizzes and tests. Students have two weeks after the date that I return the quiz or test to make corrections.

On quizzes, students may earn 25% of the points back if they come in and make corrections. Students may make corrections during their class block after the AP test on the 4th.  They may also make corrections during bridge.

On tests, students may correct the FRQs for 25% of the points back.  Students may not correct the multiple choice, as I use an AP curve, and that curve is very generous.  Also, by the time of the test, you really should know the material.  I allow corrections on FRQs as I would like to see students work on their writing skills.  Students may make corrections during their class block after the AP test on the 4th.  They may also make corrections during bridge.

Where to look for points:  Points will not be added directly to your test grade or your quiz grade.  I like to see your original score and I like to know who makes the effort to come in and make improvements.  Beside the original score is a category that says corrections. Points added here go directly into the grade, just as if I had added them to your quiz grade directly. Do not look for a percentage.  There is none.  It isn't a percentage of anything and it will say zero even if I have added points.  Instead, look to the left where it says points.  That is the amount that I have added to your grade, and it should match the score at the bottom of the page where amounts are totaled.
