Assessments




Grades need to reflect what a student knows and can do.
Therefore, summative and formative assessments will be
used in this class.
Dates for summative assessments will be announced well in
advance (tests, projects, etc.), and will be worth more points.
Formative assessments will be given frequently. These will
include worksheets, notebook checks, labs, participation,
quizzes, assignment checks, and other forms of assessment.
Grading
