Method of Consideration for March 13th AssessmentPlease go to the Parent Portal and observe the note recorded for the Genetics Assessment administered March 13th.The documented note refers to specific questions (#21 and #34) included on the assessment related to content not covered during instruction delivery. It was decided, if the students answered the question(s), points were added to the overall grade to reflect a BONUS.If students answered correctly one of the questions, 3 points were added or both questions, 6 points were added.Those questions were not calculated in the overall number of questions graded.The note associated with the grade indicates the specific question(s) answered correctly.Respectfully,Daphne HillBiology I HonorsScience Department ChairpersonRaa Middle School
