General Grading Procedures
Assessments in my classes are generally broken down into the following categories: Quizzes, Classwork, Homework, Tests, and Projects
Explanation of Grading
--Daily Quizzes are used to assess understanding of the day’s work.
--Classwork the work completed in class.
Homework is given to re-enforce the day’s lesson.
Tests are graded using a 100-point scale.
A test will be given when we have covered a sufficient amount of the material.
Projects will be given to help students show their understanding of the material. They are not intended to hurt a student’s grade. Some students do not test well so projects are used as another method to draw on the strengths and talents of the individual student.
--When absent a student will have 5 school days to make up the
--Student must come to the teacher to get missed work or check the
missed work folder.
--Missed quizzes and tests must be made up within the 5 day period
--Any missed assignments, quizzes or tests NOT made up will result in
an a grade of 2.
Reasonable amount of time will be allotted for missed assignments if students has not shown reasonable effort a grade of 25 will be given.
