• Grading Policy and Expectations for 2020-2021 School Year

     

    Due to the unique circumstances we face during this school year, where we will likely have to transition between various modes of instruction including remote, hybrid and in-person, I have decided to adopt a different system of grading than I have used in the past.

    Classwork, quizzes, projects, and daily participation in online classes will each have specific point values associated with them.  The grade a student earns in the course will be determined by the total number of points earned by the student in that marking period out of all possible points. 

              Example:  A student earns 250 points out of a possible 300 points for the marking period.  

                                               250/300 = 83.3%

     

    Daily Expectations of Students:

    Students will be on time (either in the classroom or on Google Meet)

    Students will participate appropriately in class by listening actively, asking questions, contributing answers, etc.

    Students will have all materials necessary for learning.

    Students will be prepared for class with assignments completed.

    Students will be respectful of the teacher and their classmates at all times.

    Students will notify teacher via email if they must miss class.

     

    Evaluation of Daily Participation

    Each day, students have the opportunity to earn up to 4 points toward a weekly participation grade which will be part of your marking period average.

    4 points = Student meets all expectations listed above.

    3 points = Student partially meets the expectations listed above.

    2 points = Student is in class the entire time but does not meet any other expectations.

    1 point  = Student is late to class and does not meet any other expectations.

    0 points = Student does not meet expectations listed above (including missing class without notifying teacher)

     

    If students have a legitimate reason for missing class, either online or in person, they will not be penalized if they communicate with the

    teacher about why they must miss class.  Students must be present in order for the learning process to be most effective.

    If students do miss class, catching up on what they missed is their responsibility.  They should be using Google Classroom on a daily basis and asking the teacher if they are not sure what to do.
