Question

My child brought home midterm report card,had a grade of 88b in
lit.this was on the paper copy sent home.i went on line to just
look at her grades and she now has a 68 f,it looks as though they
added a test score after the fact, she failed the test made a
53,this brought her grade down to a term grade of f,can a test
grade cause your grade to drop by 20 points is my question ,and
how to you change the report after it was already sent out?I wasnt
even notified of the change ,i mean from a b to an f ,thats a big
deal

says:

That is a big deal but even more important is why did only get 53 on the test. Please focus
on her learning not her grades; what did the test show are her areas of weakness and what
help does she need and what can you do to help her get better? I had to say that first but
she or you need to be asking questions about the teacher's grading procedures (which
should have been shared with you during the first week of school) and if you don't get
answers go to the Principal.
