Grading: All assignments are assigned a certain point value passed on their importance and difficulty. Averages are the number of points earned on assignments divided by the number of points possible.
Homework is given two or three times a week. NO late homework is accepted without a homework pass unless the student was absent. Homework even with a homework pass will not be accepted after the test/quiz on the homework’s topic. I recommend that the student copy the assignments in their agenda book at the beginning of each class. My website is for double-checking assignments and may not have been updated.
Tests are given at the end of each unit. Quizzes are given periodically during each unit. Students should study new material as it is presented to avoid the need to “cram” the night before a test. Test & Quizzes dates are given well in advance to allow students time to prepare. Reviews for tests can frequently be found as bookmarks at the top of my web page.
Other Assignment usually means classwork or multiple day assignments.
Absences: I follow the Howard County School policy, which states that a student has as many days to make up missed assignments, as they were absent. A one-day absence from class will NOT excuse a student from a test or quiz given on the day of their return unless new material was covered on the day of their absence.
