Test & Spelling Quiz Information

*Most Social Studies tests in 5th grade will include a map or some DBQ (Document Based Question). These types of questions relate specifically to analyzing the document. They are used to gather information and aide in essay writing. 


Returning Tests Policy
 - when students receive a level 2 or 1 on a quiz or test, it is NO LONGER required to be signed by a parent and returned the following day. All grades are posted to the portal in Powerschool.
In addition, 
students who received a 2 or 1 have an opportunity to make corrections in order to receive an extra credit point. These corrections must be handed in the following day when the test is returned with entire questions written out.
 Answers alone will not be accepted as corrections.

Reading Assessments - reading grades are combined with the ELA grade. As a result, all reading assessments will be located under the student's ELA grades on Parent Portal. All assignments will be labeled "Reading" so you can see the difference between the two classes.  
If your son or daughter is in my homeroom or Mrs. Magas's class and you have a concern with a reading assessment, please contact me - not Miss Markey... thank you!
