    Grading:

    Your grade in my classroom will be based upon the following:

    Tests/Quizzes: 25% of your grade will be based on test and quiz scores.

    Tests and quizzes will be based off of a point system. A test, for example, may be worth 50 pts while a quiz may only be worth 15pts.

    Students will be tested after each chapter/unit is complete.

    Quizzes will be given periodically throughout each chapter/unit. All students may have the opportunity to take one re-quiz where the higher grade may be recorded or averaged with the prior grade. Any student interested in requizzing will be required to discussion with the teacher to choose a date and time and will be required to review. It is also suggested that the student meets with me to discuss their original quiz results before taking the re-quiz. Requizzes can not be taken after the chapter/unit test has been completed.

     

    Assignments/Classwork: 25% of your grade will be based upon in class assignments and participation.

    All in class assignments may not be checked and graded, but students are required to complete the assignments in the allotted amount of time. Assignments will be checked through putting problems on the board, comparing work with peers, or handing in the assignments (as I feel it is necessary).

     

    Participation/PDNs: 25% of your grade will be based upon class participation, following and abiding by all school rules, and the correct completion of daily PDN (Please Do Now) problems that will be assigned at the beginning of each class period.

     

    Midterm/Final Exam: 25% of your grade will be based upon the completion of a midterm and or a final exam. Reviews will be completed before the midterm or final are taken. Students will have multiple opportunities to ask questions and review prior to testing.
