When determining a quarterly grade the following areas are taken into consideration:
All work must be student's own work to receive credit!
- 65% Tests, quizzes, writing assignments and projects
- 20% Classwork, labwork, use of the target language in class
- 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
These assessments will give all of the language
skills--reading, writing, listening and speaking emphasis in your grade.
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.
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.
IS ALWAYS ADVISABLE FOR YOU TO KEEP AN ONGOING RECORD OF YOUR GRADES.
