Grading

Homework is always out of 4 points. Students who score between 75% and 100% correct on their work will earn a 4. Scores between 50% and 74% will earn a 3. Scores between 25% and 49% will earn a 2. Scores less than a 2 should really be reworked for understanding and completion. Missing assignments earn a 0. 

Homework that is turned in late, even due to an absence, will be graded after all other assignments have been graded. This means that the assignment may be marked as 0 and missing in Skyward until I have time to correct it. This may take up to two weeks. 

Quizzes will usually be worth 10 points. Quizzes may or may not be announced in advance. There are no quiz retakes.

Tests will be worth 50-100 points. Tests will always be announced in advance. There are no test retakes.

I do not offer extra credit. Students need to come to class prepared every day with all assigned work completed. Fully studying for tests and quizzes needs to occur before the test as this is an essential skill for your education. 


Students are always welcome in my classroom after school to get any extra support they may need or to have a quiet place to work.
