• Standardized Grading Policy

    Short Answer Responses (SAR) for English I, II, and Reading I

    Guarantee: Students will see several examples of teachers modeling the correct style of answering a short answer response prompt in a complete sentence before a grade will be put in the grade book.

    Additionally, as we incorporate new elements in answers (text evidence and then a connection), students will also be exposed to several examples through teacher modeling before a grade will be put in the grade book.

    Grading: If the student met the required score (of a 1,2 or 3) on THE FIRST attempt they will receive a 100.  If a student does not earn full credit on their first attempt at answering a short answer response prompt, the student will receive a grade of 60.  The student is then expected to use the revising/editing suggestions provided by the teacher to correct their original response.  Corrected responses that meet the requirements for an original, full credit response will be given a passing grade of 70.  Corrected responses that fall below the requirements for an original, full credit response can earn additional points (from a 61 – 69), but will not earn a 70 until a corrected response masters all the objectives assigned for the short answer response.

    Test Corrections (Multiple Choice test for English I, II, and Reading)

    In order to make corrections on and bring up a grade on quiz – On a separate sheet of paper the student must write the correct answer choice – then in 1-2 complete sentences explain why that answer is correct and why the answer they chose is incorrect. –SAR format and NO NO’s apply. The average of the new and old scores will be taken as the new grade.

    The student needs to answer the question correctly then prove why that is the correct answer.

    If the student scored less than a 70 they MUST make corrections if they scored more than a 70 they MAY make corrections.

    Essay Corrections (Literary analysis Process writing for English I, II, and Reading)

    Guarantee: Students will see several examples of teachers modeling the correct style of answering a Literary Analysis Process piece done correctly before a grade will be put in the grade book.

    Additionally, as we incorporate new elements in the process pieces (thesis, claims, text evidence and then a connections as well as the overall essay formatting itself), students will also be exposed to several examples through teacher modeling before a grade will be put in the grade book.

    On all prewriting assignments for the essay (thesis, claims, evidence, and rough draft) the assignment will not be able to be accepted for credit until it is 100% correct. The student will make corrections based on revision and editing requirements until all requirements are met.

    On the final copy of the essay students will earn a score of a 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 based on the STAAR Rubric. If the student met the required score (of a 1,2, 3 or 4) on THE FIRST attempt they will receive a 100.  If a student does not earn full credit on their first attempt at answering the essay prompt, the student will receive a grade of 60.  The student is then expected to use the revising/editing suggestions provided by the teacher to correct their original response.  Corrected responses that meet the requirements for an original, full credit response will be given a passing grade of 70.  Corrected responses that fall below the requirements for an original, full credit response can earn additional points (from a 61 – 69), but will not earn a 70 until a corrected response masters all the objectives assigned for the essay.
