Formula for Determining Grades

Grades are determined by the formula:
Your grade = Number of Points You Earned x 100
                       Number of Points Possible

The number of points possible for an assignment represents the difficulty and importance of the assignment.  For example, a very short, simple homework assignment might be worth 10 points, whereas a major unit test might be worth 100 points.

Students can expect 3 or 4 major unit tests per quarter.  The dates of these tests are announced well in advance.  There is a sign in the classroom where the next test date for each class is always posted.
