Marking period grades are calculated using the following weightings for each of the specific types of assessments. I have also included the mathematical formula that I use in grade calculations:
Each assessment area is graded daily based on a four point rubric scale from the 6 following categories.
4 – Always / Excellent
3 – Usually / Good
2 – Sometimes / Fair
1 – Seldom / Poor
0 – Never
The total point value for each day equals up to 24 points. The students begin each day with the maximum point value allotted; however, points are deducted if specific assessment areas are insufficiently attained. Following the conclusion of each marking period, the proceeding formula(s) are utilized.
At Least 70%... Daily Student Assessment based on Rubric Above:
Formula - To account for Medical, Legal, Suspension & Make-up Written Assignments)
Average Daily Point Value / 24
x Days in Attendance / (Days in Attendance + Written Work Days)
+ Written Work Average x (Written Work Days / Days in Attendance + Written Work Days)
Up to a Maximum of 25%... Unit Specific Skill, Knowledge & Achievement Scores
Utilizing the same Rubric as Above - Approximately 3-5 Assessments each Unit.5%... Student Self Evaluation
