This class is graded on a 'Total Points' basis. Everything a student completes earns points (completed programs, homework 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
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. If you have a question about how your child is doing in the class, please e-mail the teacher at: jstevens [at]
