Students often have built-in Reassessments for quizzes.  This means having 2-3 chances to get the answer right.  However, unit exams are not the same.  If the student is requesting a reassessment of a unit exam, they must fill out the form below and discuss it with the teacher.


At the end of each term, a student is allowed to submit up to two assignments for reassessment, provided that they have completed the assignment in the first place.

It is recommended that students do not leave their assignments to the last minute in order to have a successful course experience. If a student wishes to reassess an assignment, they must complete the form below.

How Students are Assessed

Completing and submitting all assessments is a fundamental part of the learning journey, serving as a tangible measure of your understanding and progress. Each assignment, test, or project you turn in is not just a requirement; it's an opportunity to showcase your knowledge, skills, and dedication to your studies. Without a submitted product, we're unable to evaluate your work and, consequently, unable to award you the credit you may well deserve. Think of each assessment as a stepping stone towards achieving your academic goals—missing one could mean missing out on demonstrating your true potential. Remember, it's through these assessments that you not only earn credits but also gain valuable feedback, helping you grow and improve. So, let's ensure that every piece of work finds its way to completion and submission; your efforts are the key to unlocking your achievements.

What does online assessment look like?

Thank you for reaching out.

Navigating online assessments in Moodle 4, especially when we introduce proctoring tests, might seem a bit daunting at first, but here's a friendly guide to what you can expect:

  • Mixing Old School with New Tech: Sometimes, nothing beats the clarity of handwritten work. Whether it’s sketching diagrams, solving equations, or jotting down thoughts for an essay, you might find yourself reaching for a pen and paper. Just snap a picture or scan your work, and upload it to Moodle. It’s a simple way to blend traditional methods with our online platform.
  • Camera On, Please: To keep things fair and square for everyone, certain tests will ask you to keep your webcam on. Think of it as being in a regular exam hall, but you get to choose your seat (and maybe sneak in a comfortable pillow!). This helps us ensure everyone’s playing by the rules, giving you peace of mind that your hard work is recognized.
  • Getting Creative with Google Docs: For some assignments or exams, you’ll dive into RVS Google Docs. This could be anything from collaborative projects to essays where you write your thoughts in real time. It's like having a virtual study group where everyone's contribution is visible, and submitting your work is just a click away.
  • A Little Setup for a Lot of Integrity: Proctoring means a teacher will ask you turn on your camera before a test is taken. They might ask for a bit of prep work—identity verification, making sure your screen is shareable, and giving a quick tour of your test-taking space. It’s all about creating a test environment that’s secure and respects the integrity of our academic community.

We’re here to support you through this mix of traditional and digital assessment methods, ensuring you have a smooth, fair, and meaningful exam experience. And remember, if you ever feel stuck or need some guidance, your teachers and advisors (Connect Class) are just a message away.

Looking forward to seeing all the amazing work you'll accomplish!

Online learning environments offer a diverse array of assessment types to evaluate student progress, understanding, and skills effectively. Here are some common types of assessments used in online learning:

  1. Quizzes and Tests: These are sometimes timed, structured assessments that can include multiple-choice questions, true/false statements, short answer questions, and more. They are typically used to evaluate knowledge on specific topics.

  2. Assignments and Projects: Assignments may involve writing essays, creating presentations, or completing projects. These tasks can demonstrate a student's ability to apply knowledge, conduct research, and communicate effectively.

  3. Discussion Forums: Participation in discussion forums allows students to engage in critical thinking and articulate their understanding of course material. It encourages interaction among students and between students and instructors.

  4. Peer Assessments: Students evaluate each other's work based on criteria provided by the instructor. This encourages engagement and helps students learn from one another's perspectives.

  5. Portfolios: A collection of a student's work over time, portfolios showcase ongoing progress, learning achievements, and reflections on personal growth.

  6. Self-Assessments: These encourage students to reflect on their own learning and understanding. Self-assessments can help students identify areas of strength and areas needing improvement.

  7. Case Studies: Analyzing and responding to real-world scenarios helps students apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations, enhancing problem-solving skills.

  8. Simulations and Virtual Labs: For courses requiring practical or experimental skills, simulations and virtual labs allow students to conduct experiments or practice procedures in a controlled, virtual environment.

  9. Oral Presentations and Webinars: Students may be asked to present their work or ideas through online presentations or webinars, developing their public speaking and communication skills.

  10. Exams with Proctoring: Online exams that are proctored use "camera on" to monitor students during the test to ensure academic integrity.

  1. Choice Boards: Choice boards offer students a selection of activities or tasks to choose from, allowing them to demonstrate their understanding of a topic in a way that best suits their learning style and interests. This approach promotes autonomy and engagement by providing options that can include written work, creative projects, or interactive presentations.

  2. Open Book Tests: Unlike traditional exams, open book tests allow students to refer to their textbooks, notes, and online resources while answering questions. This type of assessment focuses more on understanding, analysis, and the ability to apply information rather than memorizing facts.

  3. Timed Tests: These tests are designed to assess a student's ability to think and respond quickly under time constraints. They can range from short quizzes to longer exams and are often used to simulate the pressure of real-world scenarios or professional environments.

  4. Multimedia Projects: Students create or engage with multimedia content such as videos, podcasts, or interactive websites. These projects allow students to use technology creatively to express their knowledge and ideas, providing a rich, engaging way to assess their skills and understanding.

These methods not only cater to different learning preferences but also prepare students for a range of challenges they might face in the real world. By offering diverse ways to demonstrate knowledge and skills, educators can create a more inclusive and effective learning environment for Summit Trials Online HS.
