Grades are based on a point system. There is no "weighting" of categories. The grade is calculated by dividing the total points earned by the total number of points possible.
Assessments can include, but are not limited to:
All tests, quizzes, presentations, and projects must be made up within 3 days of the return to school after an absence, unless other arrangements are made within those three days!
It is the student's responsibility to approach the teacher to arrange a make- up time!
Students are expected to volunteer to answer questions and work on in-class assignments (without asking, "Is this being graded?") (1 point per day.) Answering one or two questions at the beginning of class and then fading out will not earn the student their point for the day!
Students must bring all necessary materials (see Class Expectations page) with them to class each day in order to earn all preparedness points for the week (1 point per day.) If a student must ask to go get one of the required items, he or she loses that day's point.
Students will NOT be permitted to leave the classroom to get homework. If homework is not brought to class, the student will receive a zero for the assignment.
