Reassessment must be offered to allow a student another chance to show mastery on an exam after he/she has scored below a 75 on an exam. After reteaching occurs (if needed), the reassessment option may include a formal or informal measure deemed appropriate by the teacher/course level for evaluating the skill or concept. The teacher should make every effort to allow the student to be reassessed as soon as possible. The opportunity to be reassessed should be provided within one week after the failing grade is received. A reassessment must be completed prior to the next exam (Academic Achievement assessment).
Only one reassessment may be taken per test grade which is below a 75. If the reassessment is administered, the higher grade must replace the lower one with a
maximum grade of 75. Reassessment shall be optional on the part of the student. The reassessment option is not available for semester exams or curriculum-based measures (CBM’s). Math CBMs serve multiple purposes: as a diagnostic tool to help design interventions, to assess the mastery of the taught curriculum, and to model the rigor necessary to meet state standards. Each measure may be recorded as a single academic practice grade. Practice STAAR assessments shall not be recorded as a grade.
If 50% or more of the students in an individual class (including advanced, Honors, AP & Pre-AP) fail to demonstrate mastery of state and/or local curriculum standards on an Academic Achievement assessment, the teacher will reteach and reassess all students during class time. The higher of the two grades will be recorded in the grade book.
If fewer than 50% of all students in a class fail to demonstrate mastery of state and/or local curriculum standards on an Academic Achievement assessment, the teacher will provide re-teaching and re-assessing during or outside of class time. The grade on the re-assessment will be recorded as no higher than 75 if mastery is demonstrated. If mastery is not demonstrated, the higher grade will be recorded.
