Grades The bulk of your child’s grades will be from tests taken in class. Class work is practice that leads up to assessment. Multiple opportunities are given before the test for a child to learn the concept. More practice prior to the test = more success. Math- Quizzes and tests. Quiz scores can be improved if a higher grade is earned on the test at the end of the topic.
Grades 90%-100% = A 80%-89% = B 70%-79% = C 60%-69% = D 59% - 0% = F All grades are based on this scale. 10 ?’s = 10% per question 100 ?’s = 1% per question Grades are posted online!

Testing Students are told well in advance when tests are coming. Students are given multiple items to study that will help them on the test (notes, study guides, practice pages, thinking maps, and projects). Tests are given frequently (Every chapter – about once every week or two) Due to the budget crisis, copies of tests are shared at the grade level. Each student will not receive their own copy to take home. If you would like to see the test, please let me know and I will send you a copy to look at, review, and return. Students may use their notes on their tests! No surprises! Weekly progress reports show current grades!
