(information about grading)

Grading

When determining a quarterly grade the following areas are taken into consideration:

All work must be student's own work to receive credit!

  1. 65% Tests, quizzes, writing assignments and projects 
  2. 20% Classwork, labwork, use of the target language in class
  3. 15% Homework assignments-- correct assignment, submitted on time, complete and legible.  Assignments which are submitted late will not receive full credit (except in the case of absence).

Classwork based on having the needed materials, attentiveness in class, on-task behavior and participation in all individual, small and large group activities

Labwork--activities completed in the lab, or through the Class Zone

Cooperative work-projects involving pairs of students or several students -- responsibility to the group and the quality of the produce or presentation is emphasized

 

Internet assignments are an integral part of this class.  Sufficient time will be allotted for students to complete this type of work.  Access to the Internet is available in school if the student cannot access the web at home.  Students should plan their time so that assignments get completed on time.

These assessments will give all of the language skills--reading, writing, listening and speaking emphasis in your grade.

MARKING SYSTEM:
TEST = 100 POINTS   
QUIZ = 20, 30, 40, 50, 60
      (depends on amount of material covered)

     24/30 = 80%
     26/30 = 86.6%
     27/30 = 90%
     See interpretation chart given in class for other scores.

PROJECT VALUES WILL VARY.
DAILY WORK IS IMPORTANT!!!  GOOD QUIZ GRADES WILL BOOST YOUR AVERAGE IF YOUR TEST SCORES ARE A BIT LOW.  LIKEWISE, POOR QUIZ GRADES WILL DETRACT FROM GOOD TEST SCORES

IT IS ALWAYS ADVISABLE FOR YOU TO KEEP AN ONGOING RECORD OF YOUR GRADES.

Students are:
  • urged to ask questions and/or seek assistance from me when the material being presented seems unclear.
  • required to make up all work when absent - worksheets, homework, study assignments, practice exercises, etc.
  • urged to practice speaking the language with the teacher and one another so as to attain fluency and good pronunciation.
