Assessments (Grades): You will receive a report card four times a year. Your quarter grade is based on:
· homework assignments*
· exams and quizzes
· written work (paragraphs and essays)
· participation & classwork (individual, pair and group work, as well as whole-class discussions)
* You will receive only a 65% for a homework assignment if it is late. If you are absent (with an excuse), you must bring in a written excuse to your house administrator. If your absence is unexcused, you may not make up the homework assignment or a quiz or exam.
In addition to your quarter grades, your midterm and final exams are also calculated into your final grades.
