  • Student responses are entered into a formula so students cannot calculate their own grade.
  • some areas are worth more than others
  • students are asked to identify their strengths and weaknesses and compare from one period to the next for measures of improvement

 NOTIFICATION GRADES – 0%

  • Occasionally, we will post a “grade” that does not count toward the class grade, but rather serves as an instant notification for parents concerning a given matter. For example, if students must turn in a field trip form by September 20, we will post that as a grade with a maximum of 1 point, but it will count 0% towards the report card grade. If a student has a “1”, it has been received; otherwise it will remain a zero.
