If you have received an evaluation that does not mesh with your perception of your performance, I encourage you to follow the following steps:

  • carefully examine your assignment. Compare the questions and responses to the expectations laid out in the rubric.
  • Identify any specific elements in the assignment that may not have received an appropriate level/grade.
  • Send a note to me in edmodo. In this note of  3-4 sentences, do the following:
    1. politely ask to meet with me
    2. briefly identify the issues we need to discuss
    3. suggest a time when we can meet to discuss these issues. The time you suggest must be before school, during lunch, or after school.
