    Grading Policy:

     

    Marking Period (6 weeks) Grades:

     

    Class Assignments & Homework20% of overall grade

                 Quizzes: 10% of overall grade

    Tests70% of overall grade

     

     

          Example: If a student gets 85% average on Assignments and Homework, 78% on Quizzes and 72% average on Tests, the Marking Period Grade would be calculated like this:

                            Assignments / Homework:    85 x 20% = 17

                            Quizzes:                                  78 x 10% = 7.8

                            Tests:                                       72 x 70% = 50.4

                                         Grading Period Grade:         17 + 7.8 + 50.4 = 75.2% C
     

    Trimester Grade: (This grade goes on your Transcript and is used in calculating your GPA)

                1st Marking Period (6 weeks) Grade: 40% of Trimester Grade

                2nd Marking Period (6 weeks) Grade: 40% of Trimester Grade

                Final Exam Grade: 20% of Trimester Grade   

                           

    Example:  If a student gets a 1st Marking Period grade of 83%, a 2nd Marking Period grade of 74%, and 61% on the Final Exam, the Trimester Grade will be calculated like this:

               1st Marking Period Grade:        83 x 40% = 33.2

               2nd Marking Period Grade:       74 x 40% = 29.6

               Final Exam Grade:                     61 x 20% = 12.2

                                         Trimester Grade:                        33.2 + 29.6 + 12.2 = 75 C
