GRADING SCALE

* Graded assignments, tests/quizzes, and projects are all calculated as percentages.

* The percentages for students’ grades are as follows:

A+ 98-100%

A 95-97

A- 92-94

B+ 89-91

B 86-88

C+ 80-82

C 77-79

C- 74-76

D+ 70-73

D 67-69

D- 64-66

F 63 and below

**Tests/Quizzes: 40%**

__Weighted Grade Percentages__

Classwork: 40%

Homework: 10%

Participation: 10%

__Tests/Quizzes__: These assessments reflect a student's understanding of learning standards taught over a period of a time (such as a unit of study). Since there are fewer test grades within a quarter, these grades ultimately have a larger impact on quarter grades than classwork even though they are weighted the same.__Classwork__:

**This is work done**

__solely__in class that students have previously been taught and are being assessed for understanding. (This is not daily practice).__Homework__: This work includes assignments not necessarily completed solely in class, but is work that can be assessed for understanding of skills that have previously been taught/reviewed in class. Practice homework may__at times__be marked as a "Participation" grade.__Participation__: These are points may be given as points earned out of a total of 10 and are marked with a "P __/10" on the assignment. These points are not given solely on completion, but show that the student completed all required expectations with understanding. Points are deducted for missing components and/or lack of effort.
