Due to TAKS/EOC tutorials during the 5th Six Weeks, I have modified our testing and re-take policy to ease the inconvenience of the TAKS tutorials.

Policies:
1. After school tutorials are every Thursday from 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm in Ms. Riggins Room 300. If you work on and complete skill test corrections independently in tutorials, you will receive either a 3 or 4 on that skill test without having to take a retake.
2. Math Saturday is Saturday, March 31, 2012 from 9 am to 12 pm. If you work on and complete skill test corrections independently in tutorials, you will receive either a 3 or 4 on that skill test without having to take a retake.
3. Manga High: I have incorporated Manga High into the Skills Test and Skill Test Retakes for the 5th Six weeks.
A Bronze Medal on a Skill Test Challenge or Skill Test Retake Challenge: -> a 2.8 (70%) for the Skill Test Grade
A Silver Medal on a Skill Test Challenge or Skill Test Retake Challenge: -> a 3.4 (85%) for the Skill Test Grade
A Gold Medal on a Skill Test Challenge or Skill Test Retake Challenge: -> a 4 (100%) for the Skill Test Grade
4: If a Skill Test has more than one challenge, the scores on both will be averaged to determine the overall grade.
See below for more information.
