We value collaborative efforts and the learning that occurs with shared study.

Major assessments
Major Assessments contribute

  • All summative assessments will be graded using the Language A Assessment Rubric. All critical assessments will be handed out ahead of time.

  • Most Formative practice will be graded using formative scales.

  • Assignments not meeting minimum standards for quality and effort will be returned ungraded

What about late work
What about late Work? contribute

Summative Assessments that are not turned in on time will result in the student receiving an “incomplete” in the class. “Incomplete” grades are equal to “no credit” for the class.

Students may make arrangements with the me to earn credit. This will result in a deduction of points/percentage depending on how many days/weeks it is late.

Students are encouraged to turn work in on time. Priority for teacher feedback is given to those who meet deadlines.

  • C – meets the standards and expectations outlined in the assignments, and some understanding of the skills taught and practiced
