• Grades in music class are based as follows:
    50%   PARTICIPATION/EFFORT (performance alone and with others in class)
    30%   BEHAVIOR (50% if written work is not used that quarter)

    20%   WRITTEN WORK (worksheets, co-op activities, school concert, etc.). 
    Depending on the quarter, not all categories are used.  However, participation/effort and behavior will always be used as a grade. 
    Students will receive an A if all categories are satisfactory.  To receive a lower grade than a A indicates that a student is below that which is expected of him or her.  Although a poor quiz score/worksheet can be a factor, participation, a positive attitude and behavior is of the highest importance.
