UNIT OF CREDIT


Grades

  • MJHS uses letter grades (A, B, C, D, F, P) to report student progress. Plus/minus may be added to the letter grade as an incentive/warning. The plus/minus will appear on the student’s record, but will have no quality point value when computing the GPA.

  • Grades reflect the level of mastery on course specific curriculum standards.

To calculate the Grade Point Average (GPA) add up all of the quality points for the courses taken and divide by the total number of credits that have been earned.

Q1(37.5%) + Q2(37.5) + Sem. Ex (25%) = S1 S1(50%)+S2(50%)=Final Grade

Q3(37.5%) + Q4(37.5%) + TCAP or Course Exam (25%) = S2

Academic study time

  • There is no perfect formula for determining the proper amount of academic study for each student. It is not unreasonable to expect a student to routinely have academic study each night and some weekends.

  • When completing projects, papers, and/or preparing for examinations; the amount of academic study may become significant for brief periods.

  • The time required for completion of academic study will vary with student ability, class schedule, and proper budgeting of time.

  • Students can expect to spend two hours each night of the five (5) day school week and on some weekends completing academic study.

  • Students enrolled in advanced classes may experience an increased academic study workload.

  • Due dates for academic work and deadlines and the issuance of partial credit for late work will be determined by the individual teacher, department, or instructional team
