• Grading Policies and Scale

     

    Please read the directions on an assignment before getting started.  Most assignments will be given a grade for completion according to expectations that are given in the directions.  If something is unclear in the instructions, please ask me about it, and I will be happy to clarify!

    For discussions or other written assignments, there is often a rubric available that states specifically how you will be graded.  Most points are lost by students because they do not read the directions and complete all requirements. 

    For example, If a discussion board is worth 10 points, I may assign 7 points to your post and 3 points to a meaningful reply.  Students who do not reply to another student cannot earn more than 7/10 points (70%). 

    For ease of understanding grades, I will be using a simple point system for grades.  Assignments that are worth more points will have a greater impact on final grades than assignments that have less point value.   Most assignments are worth 5-20 points.   The grade will be translated into a percentage grade in PowerSchool.   

    For any grading concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out and ask questions respectfully by email or through Remind.  Although I am careful and rarely make errors recording grades, occasionally assignments may be accidentally overlooked if resubmitted or turned in late, or a mistake may happen.  If something looks off, let me know and I will look into it!

    Makeup Work/Late Work

    If you misunderstand an assignment and get a low grade or miss an assignment, I will  allow you to redo the assignment for a higher grade or submit it late.  Please do this in a timely manner (within a week) while the work is still relatively current in order to get full credit. 

    After those 7 days, points will be deducted by 10% for each day.
