DJR 3rd and 4th Grade Grading and Assessment Retake Policy  
A new grade scale has been created to better reflect student growth.  The following now applies to the grade scale: 

  • The reporting system has been adjusted to equalize the influence of each score.   
  • Equal increments will be used to report student achievement 
  • 100-90   A 
  • 89-80     B 
  • 79-70     C 
  • 69-60     D  
  • 59-50     F 
  • We learn by making mistakes so the lowest possible score a student will receive on a summative assessment will be a 50%.   If a student’s final score falls below a 50%, a 50% will count as the final score but the actual score will be listed in the comment section of the assignment in PowerSchool.   
In an effort to promote student growth, teachers are allowing students the opportunity to retake certain summative assessments completed in school.  The following re take procedures apply: 
  • All D or F scores on a Summative assessment WILL be reassessed one time.  
  • Students who score an A, B, or C on a Summative assessment will have the opportunity for a retake assessment once per quarter per subject.   
  • For any reassessment, the most recent score will be recorded as per district policy.   
  • For scores of A, B, or C a parent must request a reassessment in writing within 2 days of receiving the assessment. 
  • Once a teacher receives a reassessment request from a parent, the teacher will notify the parent when the reassessment will take place.
