Assessments

The school evaluation system consists of 3 (three) trimestrial averages, Partial Recuperation Exams and Final Recuperation Exams.

The trimestrial averages are assigned on a range of grades starting from 0 (zero) to 10.0 (ten), and the three quarters are not weight.

The trimestrial averages evaluate the contents of each trimester, including the prerequisites contained in the school subjects. At the end of the second trimester, a Partial Average (PA) is awarded, and it is the result from the average of the first two trimesters, according to the following formula:

PA = (trimester 1 + trimester 2): 2

Therefore, students who do not obtain a Partial Average (PA) equal to or greater than 7.0 (seven) are offered an optional Partial Recuperation Exam (PRE), to be applied at the beginning of the third trimester.

Parents who want their children to take the Partial Recuperation Exam must formalize this request, through a specific form, with the Coordination of each segment until the deadline previously established.

The Partial Recuperation Exam corresponds to a general evaluation of the contents presented in the first and second trimesters and will be carried out in the reverse shift.

There is no make up exam for the Partial Recuperation Exam.

The Partial Recuperation Exam (PRE), whenever it occurs, will be carried out as recuperation assessments with no recuperation class.

The Partial Result (PR) is obtained by assigning weight 6 (six) to the Partial Average (PA) and weight 4 (four) to the Partial Recuperation Exam (PRE) score, and the result is divided by 10 (ten) according to formula below:

PR = [(6 x PA) + (4 x PRT)]: 10

This result (PR) is 7.0 (seven) as its maximum grade and, if it is lower than the grade previously obtained by the student, it will be discarded.

At the end of the third term, an Annual Average (AA) will be composed according to the following formula.

AA = [(2 x RP) + (Quarter 3)]: 3

For students who do not take a Partial Recuperation Exam(PRE), the Partial Result (PR) will correspond to the Partial Average (PA).

Students from Elementary, Middle and High School are considered approved if they obtain an Annual Average (AA) equal to or greater than 7.0 (seven).

In the 1st year of Elementary School, teachers assign the various forms of school performance evaluation concepts (VG - Very Good, G - Good, R - Regular and I - Insufficient) per term, expressing the student's development results in the cognitive and psychomotor areas.

Final Recuperation

Students who do not achieve an Annual Average of 7.0 (seven) must take the final recuperation, without the need of enrollment.

Students who obtain an Annual Average (AA) of 3.0 to 6.99 (three and six point ninety-nine) will have Recuperation classes and, aGer that week, will take a Recuperation exam for every subject in which they did not reach this average.

After the final recuperation exam, students who obtain a Final Average (FA) equal to or greater than 5.0 (five) are considered approved. The minimum grade for this evaluation is 3.0 (three).

The Final Average (FA) is obtained by assigning weight 6 (six) to the Annual Average (AA) and weight 4 (four) to the Final Recuperation (FR) score, dividing the result by 10 (ten) according to the following formula:

FA = {[(6 x AA) + (4 x FR)]: 10} ≥ 5.0 or Approved

Immediate failure, without the right for a recuperation exam (RE), will be declared to students who obtain:

I - An Annual Average (AA) lower than 3.0 (three) in one or more subjects.

For the renewal of failing students’ enrollments, there will be a faculty meeting to evaluate the possibility of remaining in School.
