Missing Assignments Procedure
-Students will come in during recess to work on assignment not finished by due date.
-If not complete: demerit is issued and the student will work on the assignment again at recess that day.
-Third and fourth late assignments will result in a demerit.
-Every late assignment after the fourth will result in a detention.
Students are graded on straight points.
Quizzes and tests will have more questions than homework assignments and class work and therefore will be worth more points.
For example, a 40 question test will be worth 40 points in the grade book. Short answer and essay questions will be assigned more points on tests and quizzes - A ten question short answer/essay quiz will be worth more than 10 points.
Most writing assignments will be graded on a 100 point scale using a rubric. Shorter assignments will be worth less points - but still graded using a rubric.
Students receive a copy of the rubric being used to score a writing assignment before they begin the assignment.
