District Quarterly Checkpoints: Vital Information
Quarterly District Checkpoints will assess student mastery of the power standards and other related standards for the Quarter and may contain content from multiple units of study depending on the scope and sequence for your course. This data will be used to track student progress towards mastery of grade appropriate standards.
Secondary: It is acceptable to create 3 of your own summative assessments as a team and use the District Checkpoint as a way for students to replace their lowest test score for the grading period.
District Quarterly Checkpoint Windows for Social Studies
All grade level Social Studies teachers should administer District Checkpoints within 2-3 days of each other.
Teacher teams will decide on a two-three day window within the Checkpoint windows listed above at Cadre meetings and this information will be communicated accordingly.
How to Create Quality Summative Assessments
Any summative that is subjective (writing assignments, presentations, portfolios, projects) MUST have a rubric. Rubrics should have 3-4 categories (1-Below Expectations, 2-Developing or Approaching Expectations, 3- Meeting Expectations, 4-Exceeding Expectations). The preferred method is 1- Below, 2- Approaching, 3- Meeting.
If you need help creating rubrics please ask a Content Coordinator! We will gladly look over any rubrics and provide warm (positive) and cool (areas of needed growth) feedback in a timely manner.
