how to access the resources that are available to support their success in the course.
❖ Provide parents with resources on how they can support their student with online learning as well as
monitor their progress in the course.
❖ Identify indicators that the course is moving forward as planned as well as indicators that it is not and
strategies for what to do when that happens.

Grading and Report Cards


❖ Students will be receiving a letter grade for this course (10 point scale)
100 – 90 = A
89 – 80 = B
79 – 70 = C
69 – 60 = D
59 – 0 = F
❖ Overall grade will consist of quizzes (40%) and tests (60%). Quick checks will not be averaged into their
overall grade.
❖ A grade book is set up within Canvas for the students to track their progress and grades.
❖ A separate report card will be sent to the school from the online teacher. Only the quarter average will be
provided, no comments. The gradebook in Canvas gives a more detailed break-down of how the student
performed on specific content.
❖ Students will not receive a grade on the 5th grade progress reports and report cards for math.

Quick Checks/Quizzes/Tests/Retake Tests


❖ All Quick Checks, Quizzes, Tests, Retake Tests must be completed ONLINE.
❖ Students will complete the paper copy of the quick check/quiz/test/retake tests FIRST before entering
their answers online.
❖ Students are not allowed to take the paper copies home. Calculators are only allowed on tests that say
Calculator Active.
❖ Students are allowed to retake each unit test one time if they choose, within the Quarter Deadline. The
student is expected to make arrangements with the SSA teacher only after he/she made corrections to their
original test. The higher grade between the test and the retake test will be recorded towards their overall
grade. There are no retakes for quizzes.

Best Practices for Supporting your Online Math Student


❖ Conference once a week with your student:
➢ Read the weekly announcements together
➢ Look over their math notebook to see what day they are on to ensure they stay on pace with the
course. Make sure they are working out the math problems and completing all assignments.
➢ View their grades weekly: Are they completing all of their quick checks, quizzes, tests? Are they
making corrections to the problems they missed? Are they taking advantage of retakes for tests?
➢ Instead of asking your student “How is Math going?” Ask them, “Show me how your math is going.”
