Grading Policy:

55%    Primary Assessments (Unit Tests, Project Based Assessments, and the Final Exam)

Tests: Single-page, multi-page, written and electronic response assessments which cover a portion or a full unit’s objectives using multiple choice, multiple response, short answer, and open-ended questions. Chapter tests will each occur once approximately every month.

 

Project Based Assessments: Rubric-graded performance tasks consistent with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards for Mathematics. Google apps will often play an important role in these assessments.

 

Final Exam: Cumulative, multi-page assessment which covers the curriculum for 7th grade math using multiple choice, short answer, and open-ended questions.

30%    Secondary Assessments (Section Quizzes, and Project Based Assessments)

Mid-Topic Assessment: Single-page written response assessments which cover multiple objectives for a unit using multiple choice and short answer questions.  Section quizzes will occur approximately once per week.

15%     Supportive Assessments (Homework, and Participation)

Homework: Assigned questions consisting of problems from the textbook or from worksheets consistent with the unit’s objectives.  Scoring for each assignment is based on an “attempt all (100%) or nothing (0%)” completion policy.  

 
  • An attempt is when students form answers or questions in response to all problems.  Each response should be adequate evidence that the problem was read and stimulated thought.

Students may make corrections on the following assessments for extra credit towards their current Marking Period average. Students have unlimited attempts to submit these corrections, but they must be fully complete and correct for students to receive the additional credit. 

  1. Students may make up any missing or incomplete homework assignment for half-credit.

  2. For any grade below 60%, corrections will restore that grade to a minimum of 60%.

  3. Occasionally, students who score below 100% on tests will receive an opportunity to make corrections to recover a portion of credit, dependent upon the class average.
