Quizzes are given every Friday. I teach one concept for the entire week and quiz on Friday. There are usually ten questions and students have the entire period to complete the quiz. Only students with IEP's and 504's are allowed extra time. If a student is absent, he/she will make up the quiz the day he/she comes back to school. If a student refuses to take a quiz in class, a zero is given and it cannot be made up.
Students must take the quiz in pencil. If they use anything else, I will take five points off of their quiz.
If a student fails a quiz, he/she can make up the quiz. Arrangements need to be made with me prior because I need parents permission. We can plan to get to school a little early and the child can re-take the quiz. The child MUST re-take the quiz in my classroom. I WILL NOT except a made up quiz from home. I need to see the child take the quiz myself.
