AR Point Goals
Each marking period students will be assigned indiviualized AR point goals to meet by the end of the marking period. These points are earned by reading and taking AR quizzes. Grades for independent reading are assigned by a 20-30pt grade (equivalent to about 10% of the final MP grade) at the end of each marking period based on the percentage of the goal the student earns.
Other Independent Reading Assessments
Students' progress will also be assessed using written responses (RRR - Read, Review, Respond) and other projects throughout each marking period. Throughout the year students will be assigned novels to read in class, in both reading and English, these novles also can be used to count toward a student's independent reading goals.
Taking an AR Quiz
Students are only allowed to take an AR quiz while they are in Mr. Lettie's room. Quizzes are not accesible outside of school, and students should not take a quiz with other teachers, in other rooms, during other classes. Mr. Lettie will periodically provide time in class to take a quiz; students have the opportunity to take quizzes while visiting the library, during class, every other week; and students may ask for a pass to come to Mr. Lettie's room to take a quiz during other independent work times (home room, etc.).
Tracking Your Progress
Students can track their goal progress here at school using the reading log that they are to keep in their reading folders, or by signing on to Renaissance Learning while at school and clicking "progess".
