Grading Guidelines

  •  

     
    Graded Work
    All work falls into 2 categories:  formative and summative.  Formative grades are worth 50% of a student's grade and include their daily work, homework, quizzes.  Summative grades are worth 50% of a student's grade and include their unit assessments and projects.  
     

     
     
    Late Work
    All students are expected to turn in their work by the due date. Late work will be accepted for 5 days with a penalty of 10 points per day, with a maximum deduction of 30 points.  On the 6th day, the student will earn a zero.  If extenuating circumstances arise that cause work to not be turned in on time please contact me.
     

     
    Failed Assignments
     
    All other work other than exams: Students may receive an alternative assignment or do corrections for any failing work other than exams.  Alternative assignments and corrections will earn a maximum grade of a 70.  It is the student's responsibility to complete and turn in alternative assignments or corrections.  
     
    Exams: Students who fail an exam are eligible to take a retest.  Students have 1 week from the time they receive their test grade back to sign up for a retest.  In order to do a retest the student must have completed the test review and attended at least one tutoring session.  Retests will earn a maximum grade of a 70.  It is the student's responsibility to sign up and come in for the retest.  
     
     
    Tutoring
    Tutoring will be held weekly on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:45-8:05 and afterschool Thursday . If you need more help or you can't do that day come see me to make alternative arrangements.  
     
     
    Classroom News
     
    Homework: This will be in the form of vocabulary quizzes.
     
     
    Tardies:  Students who are tardy to class will be a  given a referral to the office after the 4th tardy and beyond.  Students will serve a lunch detention.  Please see the handbook for more information.  I require students to be in their chair by the time the bell rings.  If a student is not in their seat, they are considered tardy.
     
    Absences:  It is the student's responsibility to check the absent work container located in front of the classroom.  There is a folder for each class period.  They must see me the day they return to school to double check for missing work.  If a student is absent or going to be absent, please email me as soon as possible so I can gather work together.
