Both Science and Social Studies will be graded using total points.
Students will be assessed in a number of different ways including, tests, quizzes, classwork, projects, experiments, labs, and rarely homework.
Every assessment will be given a point value. (*Point value may be determined by the amount of questions, categories, or requested responses for each assessment.)
A student's grade is calculated by dividing the number of correct answers by the total amount of points possible for the assessment.
Example: Mrs. Catizone got 16 questions correct on a test with a total of 20 questions. 16/20 = 80%
*Due to test security issues all assessments will be kept in the students' files for the duration of the school year. A copy of the assessment will only be sent home to be signed and returned by a parent or guardian in the event a child receives a grade of 69% or lower.
