     Grading policy:

    • Grades are based on points. To calculate the grade: add up total points earned and divide by total points possible
      • Homework: ½ point per vocabulary definition and ½ - 1 point per journal entry
      • Projects: 1-5 points per requirement
      • Quizzes/tests: 1-2 points per question, up to 5 points for essays
    • Late work policy: if the assignment answers have not been covered in class, students will receive ½ credit if they turn in a completed assignment one day late, after one day students won’t receive credit for late assignments.
    • Academic integrity: 0 credit will be given for the entire assignment or test where answers have been exchanged dishonestly
    • Extra credit work: one or more extra-credit assignments will be offered each 9 week grading period
      • Due one week before the end of the grading period
      • Number of points cannot be greater than 5% of the total points for the 9 week grading period
    • Make up work: Students are responsible for work they miss when they are absent from class.
      • Make up work will only be provided/graded at times when a student has an excused absence
      • Students are to see the classwork calendar, and check in the make-up work folder at the beginning of class to determine what was missed.
      • If a student was present the day an assignment was made, the student is responsible for homework to be completed by the original due date. If, however a student misses several days, an adjusted due date will be arranged.
      • If a student misses the day of a test or quiz, the student will be expected to take the test/quiz when they return. If however a student misses several days, an adjusted test date will be arranged
