Grades will be calculated using a total points system. Every test, quiz, project, notebook check, computer task, and in-class assignment will be awarded a set number of points. Since a total point system is used, ALL assignments are coded as tests. Please read the column heading to interpret an assignment.
Grades will come in the form of fractions. The numerator will represent the points earned on an assignment. The denominator will represent the number of points possible. To figure out the percentage for each assignment, divide the numerator by the denominator. The more points an assignment is worth, the more it will impact your final grade. There are typically no extra credit assignments, but extra credit questions are included in all assessments. Please allow about a week after a major assignment or test is given to see the grade on Genesis. Projects may take several weeks to appear on Genesis.
