Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments and GRAD Exams THE SCHEDULE & SCHOOL DAY The Four Period School Day Student schedules are based on a four period day. The four period day schedule includes four 87 minute class periods each day. Due to the length of the class period, students complete the typical semester class in one term (nine weeks), and a full year class in two terms (18 weeks). Period 1 Period 2 Period 3 Period 4 Term 1 Term 2 Term 3 Term Schedule Errors As a result of a thorough registration process, there will NOT be an opportunity to change schedules. A student can only drop a class the first week of a term for the following reasons: Not having the pre-requisite for the class listed or student is significantly misplaced as evidenced by previous course grades. Having failed a class. Obvious scheduling errors (two classes scheduled in the same hour). A class needed for graduation is not listed or was dropped from the schedule. The schedule is unbalanced (two open hours in a term, four heavy classes in one term). This is a change from past practice. Students will no longer have until the mid-point of a term to drop a class. Reminder: Freshmen and sophomore students are expected to carry a full schedule throughout the school year. Junior and senior students are expected to carry a minimum of 3 classes per term. 3

4 Course Grading GRADING AND EVALUATION All students must receive a passing grade in all required courses and accrue at least 54 credits to graduate. The purpose of grading is to communicate to parents/guardians, students, and the community the extent to which the student has met the objectives of a course. The grading system is based on a 4.0 non-weighted grading system as defined below: A = A- = B+ = B = B- = C+ = C = C- = D+ = D = D- = F = 59 & below Pass/No Credit: P = 73% and above NC = Below 73% Incomplete Policy Incompletes can be given to students who did not complete coursework due to extenuating circumstances beyond their control. Any incomplete not resolved by three weeks into the following term will be changed to an F. In order to resolve an incomplete, a student must make arrangements with the teacher to complete the missing work. That work should be completed during the first three weeks directly following completion of the course. If the work is not completed by the three week deadline, the student will receive an F. If the work was in English, math, social studies, biology, or physical science the student may make up that credit in EPHS summer school. Summer school applications are available in Student Center East during spring term. Pass/No Credit The guidelines for the pass/no credit options are: The passing grade for all departments will be 73 percent of the accumulated points or grades for the term. Students may exercise the option for up to two courses each year with no more than one per term. Use caution: Many colleges and universities request courses be taken for a letter grade. Students must declare their intent in writing by submitting a Pass/No Credit form (with required signatures) by the deadline. Forms are available in each Student Center. The deadline for applying for a Pass/No Credit grade is generally the second school day following parent/teacher conferences each term. Repeating a Class A course taken through Eden Prairie High School may be repeated with the consent of a counselor if the student originally received a grade of D+, D, D-, or F. The student will receive credit only once for the repeated course. The higher grade will appear on the transcript and a grade of NC replaces the other grade. It is the responsibility of the student to request to have the lower grade removed. Repeating a class will be allowed on a space available basis only. Graduating Honors Gold Cord Silver Cord Honors Diploma Grade Point Average of Grade Point Average of or more Advanced Placement (A.P.) and/or equivalent college level credits Overall GPA 3.5 or above Eligibility for Honors Diploma will be determined at the pass/nocredit declaration date during 4 th term 4

Listed below are categories of those tests including the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments, college admissions tests, and optional tests. REQUIRED ASSESSMENTS The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) GRAD tests in Language Arts and Mathematics The MCA measures the degree to which students are proficient in language arts and mathematics. The MCA writing assessment is given to students in the 9 th grade. The MCA reading assessment is given to students in the 10 th grade. And the MCA mathematics is given to students in the 11 th grade.

Grade 10 & 11- Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test (PSAT): The PSAT is recommended for college-bound juniors. Sophomores may also take the PSAT. The PSAT measures verbal, math, and writing skills. It provides practice for SAT I and is the qualifier for the National Merit Scholarship Program. See the EPHS website in early September for registration information. American College Testing (ACT): The ACT is administered on five national test dates. It measures skills in five major curriculum areas: English, mathematics, reading, writing, and science reasoning. It is recommended that the college bound juniors take the ACT and/or SAT in the spring of their junior year and those seniors who have not tested or need to retake these test(s) do so in the fall of their senior year. Information is available at Scholastic Assessment Tests (SAT): The SAT test is primarily multiple choice and measures critical reading, math, and writing abilities. The SAT II/Subject Tests measure your knowledge of particular subjects and your ability to apply that knowledge, and should be taken as soon after completing the appropriate coursework as possible. It is recommended that the college bound juniors take the ACT and/or SAT in the spring of their junior year and those seniors who have not tested or need to retake these test(s) do so in the fall of their senior year. Information on the SAT tests is available at Advanced Placement Examinations (AP Exams): Part of the Advanced Placement Program is the Advanced Placement Examination. Examinations are offered on national test days in May. Successful scores give students the opportunity to receive advanced placement and/or credit in college. AP Examinations are offered in 32 courses. See the EPHS website in early February for exam registration. Credit for Learning: Eden Prairie High School also has a Credit for Prior Learning policy which provides students the opportunity to demonstrate prior learning. A student may test out of a course if s/he is able to demonstrate prior knowledge and mastery of the course outcomes. Each department determines the appropriate assessments and acceptable level of performance. A student may not test out of any course in which they are currently enrolled (or were previously enrolled). Testing will occur twice per year. All applications for this testing must be completed by November 1 for terms 3 & 4 and April 1 for terms 1 & 2 of the next school year. Forms for the Credit for Prior Learning process are available through the Gifted and Talented Coordinator. POST SECONDARY PLANNING Admissions Recommendations for Technical Colleges, Colleges & Universities: It is important that students and parents do long-range educational planning to ensure that students are prepared and have the necessary background for the many options available to students after high school.
