Policies - Late Work, 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 a test or a quiz must make up the assignment at a time arranged with the instructor outside of the time for instruction (not during a class block, but before or after school or during lunch). If the absence is excused, students may make up quizzes and tests within a week after the missed date without penalty.  After that time, or if the absence is unexcused, students will receive a 10% reduction in points for each week that the tests and quizzes are not made up.  Please be aware that the make-up quiz or test will be different than the one given in class to prevent students from sharing information.


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.

Questions:  I am happy to answer questions before or after school or by email.
