Weekly spelling tests, weekly Words to Know, weekly Comprehension and Phonics tests and mid-chapter math tests are all Formative Assessments. Formative assessments can take many forms and are not limited to the above. Summative Assessmen make up 75% of the quarterly report card grades and they provide evidence of the mastery of skills. These are given at the end of a unit or chapter. A summative grade of a D or F requires a reassessment after reteaching. The most recent score will be recorded. A/B/C grades for Summative can be reassessed, but only one per subject per quarter, and again the most recent score will be recorded.
