Grading Policy

Grading Policy
  • 90% of a student’s grades are based on Summative Assessments. Summative Assessments are given periodically to determine, at a particular point in time, student learning relative to content standards. Some examples of summative assessments are standards-based quizzes and tests, large projects, final drafts, lab reports, mastery assessments, summative presentations, and demonstrations of proficiency.
  • 10% of a student's grade is based on the following Employability Skills: Reliability, Collaboration, Communication, Respect, Professionalism, Attitude, Problem Solving
  • Students may retake summative assessments.  The EPHS retake policy can be reviewed in the student handbook.
