  • Assignments and Grading

    - All assignments are graded for completion, being turned in on time, and whether or not the assignments parameters, that were stated when the assignment was given, were met. Exemptions or extensions will be given on a case by case basis.

    - LATE WORK - any work that is late (turned in past the given due date) will be allowed to be turned in ONE DAY late for 80% credit if 1.) A missing work slip is signed by a parent & 2) The missing assignment is turned in COMPLETE. This holds true with all assignments, in all of my classes. 

    - The grades are usually entered weekly, or at max 1.5 weeks from collection date depending on assignment. This time frame is only for small assignments like WS, TB, or WB. (worksheets, textbook, or workbooks). There is a extended time frame in place for writing assignments as these tend to take longer to grade. 

    - Worksheets, Journals, and workbooks will have an assigned point value per page. 

    - Labs and projects will have an overall assigned value that will be stated to the class on the day the assignment is given. 

    - Some assignments will be allowed to fix for half credit, and the students will be told what assignments they are the day they are gone over. 

    - Most writing assignments, in all of my classes, are graded by using the basic writing rubric below. 

    - Content specific rubrics will be used from time to time and will be listed on the individual assignment for viewing. 

    - Any questions about grading can be asked at any time by emailing me or setting up a conference time that is convient for you.
