• Instruction 

    A competency-based learning model will be used for face-to-face summer learning courses.  At the beginning of each lesson, students will take a pre-assessment.  If the student earns 70% or higher on the pre-assessment, s/he will advance to the next lesson.  If the student earns < 70% on the pre-assessment, s/he will engage in the lesson and complete all assignments.  During this time, teachers may provide direct instruction on targeted concepts.  Students should seek teacher support when they do not understand a concept.  Upon completion of the lesson, students will take a post-assessment.  If the student earns 70% or higher, s/he will advance to the next lesson.  If the student earns <70%, the teacher will provide targeted instruction to address student misconceptions and re-set he post-assessment for a second attempt.  Students have three attempts to earn 70% or higher for each lesson.

    Grading

    Pre-assessment scores of 70% or higher will be recorded in the grade book in the Major category.  Pre-assessment scores below 70% will not be recorded in the grade book.  The final post-assessment score for each lesson will be recorded in the grade book in the Major category.
