School Information: This presentation is not meant to be the final discussion on Mastery. However, it will hopefully be a enough to address some basic questions about the process and the rationale.
Mastery Information:
Applying the 84% Mastery Concept at Ridge Road
Students who fail to score at least 84% on an assessment (major tests or formal assessments) will have the opportunity to retake the assessment once.

● Students will have opportunities during the school day and before to gain the deficit knowledge necessary to demonstrate mastery when the assessment is re-administered.

● The re-test should cover the same content material, but should not be identical to the original test.

● Tutoring is a mandatory step taken prior to retesting.

● The retest score obtained may be higher than 84%, but the gradebook grade will not reflect anything higher than 84% for a re-test score. For example: If the first score is 78 and the second score is 90 then the final gradebook score is 84. The maximum re-test score a student can earn is 84%.

● Re-tests should take place within 5 days of the original feedback date.

84% Mastery and Tutoring in Mrs. Gilbert's Class:Students have the opportunity to retake any test they did not achieve an 84% or better on. Students may retest during class the day after the first attempt and after completing peer tutoring during class. You may also attend a 6th Grade Social Studies Department Tutoring offered Monday mornings at 8:15-8:45 with a confirmation email or parent three days prior. This email must include contact information with a telephone number. The schedule will rotate teachers from the Social Studies Department. PLEASE take advantage of this amazing opportunity!
