Scores lower than 75 can be raised by completing a retake. The new score cannot be higher than a 75. When a student scores below a 75, it is expected that the student contacts me to schedule a time to do so. Depending on the situation, students may first need to review the material with me first. Typical times for review and retakes are during HW club.
