Grading Procedures:

 

During the school year, students will receive two report cards, one at the end of each term. In addition, 3 interim reports will be issued each semester. The report cards will be a cumulative grade of the entire term’s work. Interim grades are cumulative as well. When a student misses an assignment/test due to an absence, a 0 will be recorded in the gradebook until the assignment/test is made up and graded.

 

Weighted Grades

 

Grades will be weighted in all classes as follows:

 

          Major Assessments (MA) 40% - Unit or Chapter Tests, etc.

          Assessed for Accuracy (ACC) 35% - Quizzes, Labs, Projects, etc.

          Participation/Completion (PC) 10% - Classwork or Homework

          End of Semester Assessment (SEM EX) 15% - EOC or Proficiency Test

 

Cheating/Plagiarism:

 

Each student is expected to do his or her own work unless specified by the teacher. Any student who cheats, copies another’s work, or allows another student to copy their work may receive a zero for that assignment or test. Reminder – If an assignment has a due date, then that is the day it is due. If it is late, you may not receive full credit. You need to become accustomed to meeting deadlines; do not wait or procrastinate!
