    KPSD Summer Mathematics Assignments 2018



    This summer our mathematics assignments for students entering grades 4 through Algebra II will be completed via IXL.com.  Students will be required to complete 5 IXL skills during each of the four summer windows outlined below (for a total of 20 IXL skills).  


    Skills were selected for each grade level as a review of concepts learned in the prior year.  While students will be working in the level they are entering in September, the skills list they will choose from will only be those which have been taught in the grade that was just completed.


    The four summer windows are as follows:


    Window #1:  July 1st - 15th  (5 IXL skills)

    Window #2:  July 16th - 31st  (5 IXL skills)

    Window #3:  August 1st - 15th  (5 IXL skills)

    Window #4:  August 16th - 31st  (5 IXL skills)

    Summer Help/Computer Access for IXL is being offered in the KCS Media Center:


    July 12th:  1-3pm

    July 25th:  1-3pm

    July 26th:  1-3pm

    August 2nd:  1-3pm

    August 9th:  1-3pm

    August 30th:  1-3pm


    Scoring:

    Completion of the summer assignment counts as a major grade.  Each skill is worth 5 points, multiplied by 20 total skills for 100 points possible.  Students will earn points for completed skills based on the following criteria:


    1 point if the completed skill is from the appropriate skills list provided

    1 point if the completed skill was finished within the time window (only 5 skills per window)

    1 point if the completed skill has a smartscore of 70

    1 point if the completed skill has a smartscore of 80

    1 point if the completed skill has a smartscore of 90


    Examples:


    Ex. 1:   A student completes all 20 skills on June 30th .  All of the skills were from the appropriate list, and were completed with a smartscore of 90.  This student would earn 80 points (-20 points for completing the skills outside of time windows).


    Ex. 2:   A student completes all 20 skills on July 1st .  All of the skills were from the appropriate list, and were completed with a smartscore of 90.  This student would earn 85 points (-15 points for completing 15 of the skills outside of time windows, 5 skills were within the first window).


    Ex. 3:   A student completes 5 skills on July 5th, 5 skills on July 20th, 5 skills on August 3rd, and 5 skills on August 16th.  All of the skills were from the appropriate list, and were completed with a smartscore of 90. This student would earn 100 points.


    Ex. 4:   A student completes 5 skills on July 5th, 5 skills on July 20th, 5 skills on August 3rd, and 5 skills on August 16th.  All of the skills were from the appropriate list, and were completed with a smartscore of 80. This student would earn 80 points (-20 points for not reaching a smartscore of 90).
