Grading/Retest Policy

What is the grading policy?


As stated in the HMS Student Handbook, the grading policy is as follows:


Grading Guidelines:

  •       Minimum 12 daily grades per grading period
  •       Minimum of 3 major/test grades per grading period


Re-test Policy:

   Students may complete a re-test or alternate assignment for a grade no higher than a 70. 


Mrs. Kelly’s Test Correction Requirements


In Order To Replace a Failing Test Grade With a 70, You Must Complete The Following Tasks:


  1. On a sheet of notebook paper, write out each question you missed, the correct answer, and a brief explanation of why that answer is correct.
  2. Write a 5 – 10 sentence paragraph explaining: (1) actions you believe led to your failing the test. (2) actions will you take in the future to assure that you are successful on the next test.
  3. Have your parent/guardian sign and date the corrected question sheet and explanation paragraph.
  4. Submit each document to Mrs. Kelly for review within 5 class days of receiving original test results.




  • Daily Grade assignments are not eligible for regrades.  You keep the grade you earn on daily assignments.
  • I DO NOT GIVE EXTRA CREDIT ASSIGNMENTS.  You get the grade you earn in my class.



Make-Up Work Policy: 1 day grace is given for each day absent to submit the assignment.  It is the student’s responsibility to check either in Canvas or with Mrs. Kelly for missed assignments.



Late-work Policy:

o   1 day late = 10 point deduction

o   2 days late = 20 point deduction

o   3 days late = 30 points deduction

o   4 or more days late = accepted at teacher’s discretion

                                 (maximum of 50 points on assignment)
