What is the grading policy?

Posted by:

A.  50% tests, projects, major writing, research, socratic seminars (summative)

     50% daily work, quizzes, participation, etc. (formative)

B. Failing Test grades (not long term assignments) can be redone for a max of 70 within 5 days of the grade being placed in TXConnect.

C.  Essays can always be revised and edited to be regraded, as long as it is in the same grading period.  Our goal is to improve writing- not have it be a

     'one and done' process (except timed writing which we know is basically a rough draft)

D.  No late work will be accepted after 5 days (we have extended the district policy on this)

E.  Late work will result in point deductions each day until turned in.
