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.

Sketchbook assignments are Major grades and will be assigned every two weeks starting Wednesday Sept. 6 and Due Wednesday Sept. 20th. Sketchbook assignments will be listed each time they are assigned on my teacher webpage. Teacher web-http://wwjhs.tomballisd/ look for my name under the school directory.
