Tests and major assignments are usually 100 points or more. Homework is worth 15 points and quizzes are worth 30 points. I expect all assignments to be handed in on time. If for some reason you are unable to complete a test or quiz, arrangements must be made with me for a make-up within one week of the original due date, or else a grade of zero may be given. On most occasions, points will be deducted (usually 5-10% per day, depending on the assignment) for work not handed in on time. Daily homework must be turned in on the day it is due and they will not be accepted late. As with most things in life, exceptions to this policy can be made on a case-by-case basis. Remember, zeros will destroy your average. Grades will be available and updated on eSchool Parent Portal every SATURDAY.
On major assignments and tests, you will always receive detailed feedback. Most of this feedback will be given in the form of a student/teacher conference. THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO FULLY UNDERSTAND YOUR GRADE. Please take these opportunities to address your strengths and weaknesses and to ensure you are doing everything possible to be successful.
