This class is graded on a 'Total Points' basis. Everything a student finishes earns points (completed programs, weekly FRQs, homework, quizzes). 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||93||A|
Here are approximate percentages for the weighting of the 4 categories of student work:
Unfortunately, any letter grade or percentage that Genesis lists will be wrong. Also unfortunately, Genesis doesn't provide a column for the total points that a student has earned. If you have a question about how your child is doing in the class, please e-mail the teacher at: jstevens [at] metuchenhigh.org.
