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.
