This class is graded on a 'Total Points' basis. Everything a student completes earns points (completed work and quizzes). The points that a student has earned appear in Genesis in a column headed by "E". At the end of a marking period, a student's grade is based on the points earned. A detailed, tentative rubric that associates points earned with a grade will be posted at least two weeks before the end of the marking period.
Here is an approximate rubric for marking period 1:
|Points Earned||Grade Earned||155||A|
Here are approximate percentages for the weighting of the 3 categories of student work:
Unfortunately, any letter grade or percentage that Genesis lists will be wrong. If you have a question about how your child is doing in the class, please e-mail the teacher at: jstevens [at] metuchenhigh.org.
