This class is graded on a 'Total Points' basis. Everything a student completes earns points (completed programs, homework and 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 |

100 | A |

75 | B |

50 | C |

25 | D |

Here are approximate percentages for the weighting of the 3 categories of student work:

Programs | 55-65% |

Homework | 20-25% |

Quizzes | 15-20% |

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.
