1. Tests = 50%
    Tests/Long term projectswill be announced and written on the board with plenty of advance notice. Test grades will be posted on the Parent Portal.
    Projects/Long-term assignments - will be weighted according to content. Due dates are important; students need to learn responsibility regarding the importance of a deadline and time management skills with how to pace themselves. Work in this category submitted late will lose 10 points a day and will not be accepted after 3 days late. 
    2. Quizzes = 35%
    Quizzes/short term projects - quizzes may or may not be announced in advance. In-class projects are often included in this category. Quiz grades will be posted on the Parent Portal.
    3. Homework/Class Work/Class Participation/Preparation = 15% 
    Homeworkis assigned most weeknights as a review and reinforcement of current Science concepts. Homework is written on the board in the same spot and is to be copied into the Agenda at the start of class. If there is nothing written in for a date, chances are your student didn't bring their Agenda to class or did not write homework in during the time given. Only homework done completely and on time will get full credit or 100%; No late homework accepted.
            Class Work - periodically class work assignments will be graded, so always do your best work. 
    Class Participation/Preparation - Students are expected to be active participants engaged in their learning experience. Students must be prepared with supplies/assignments every day to keep the learning environment running smoothly and efficiently.
    Absences - It is the responsibility of the students who are absent to come get and complete all missed work (homework, classwork, quizzes, tests) as soon as they return. To earn 100% credit, work is due in as many days as absent, 50% if late, and 0 if not done or submitted. Being absent does not excuse students from their assignments. Please reinforce this with your child when they are absent.
