Grading Guidelines


Major assignments shall constitute 60% of the grade per reporting period. Other assignments shall constitute 40% of each grade per reporting period.  Teachers are required to provide at least three major assessments/grades and at least nine other grades (daily grades) during each grading period. Teachers are highly encouraged to provide more assessments as appropriate.  For my class, there will certainly be more in each area.

For instance:

Warm-ups grades are Daily grades and there will be one for each week of school. Each warm-up is written on the board each day. Students are to copy the warm-up word for word and answer. Students will keep it and turn it in on the last day of that week.

Sketchbook assignments are Major grades and will be assigned every two weeks starting soon. Students will be able to work on their sketchbook assignments when they have completed an assignment and at home. You will be receiving and reminder email from me the Friday before it is due.

Regular assignments may vary and students, when given an assignment, will be told if it is a Daily or Major Grade.

Late Work- 1 Day Late= 15 points off

2 Days Late= 30 points off

After that= 0

 

“Students will be given the opportunity to master the curriculum and to improve one major grade per grading period according to the following guidelines:  Offered to all students who have failed a major grade assessment.  The content will be determined by the teacher.  The maximum score will be  70.  No assignment will be given to students who previously earned a 0.  The assignment will be offered at the end of the nine-week grading period.”

 

All grades will be up to date on Fridays unless I am absent that day.
Late work: Work will be accepted up to 3 days late with 10 points taken off for each day late. After that time students will receive 0.
 
Feel free to call me during the conference time period 9 with any concerns or questions. I will return phone calls within 24 hr. time period unless I am absent that day.
 
Parent volunteers are always welcome, especially when we are doing clay. You must be on the approved volunteer list. You can find that form by contacting Melinda Harrell at the school's front desk.
 
Wish List for my classes-
yarn, newspaper, empty power towel and toilet paper rolls, sharpies (any color), masking tape, glue, colored pencils
