Students will be encouraged to retake quizzes or tests for a

is more important than “when” it is learned. Each student is unique and may choose to
retake tests and quizzes depending on their individual circumstances and
satisfaction with their current grade.

1. Retakes will be
offered during after school help.

retake) tests and quizzes must be corrected with all work shown correctly before
a new retake will be provided. Before

3. There will be ONE
new retake provided for each test and quiz, each week of the quarter. You may attempt each retake, one time, each
week. You may continue to improve your
grade the following week, after corrections.
Each retake will be comparable in difficulty to its original.

offered during each unit. Extra credit
may be received for homework completion, quality lab performance, unit
projects, and completing questions sets based on previously presented material.
