Course Grading Policy & Procedures:

Classwork/Homework/Participation/TTM      50%   Corrections Permitted*  

Quizzes/Interactive Notebooks                   20%   Corrections Permitted*                      

Tests/Projects/Notebooks                          30%   NO CORRECTIONS PERMITTED

Each student will receive a progress report EVERY Monday or Tuesday.  Any missing assignments or corrections need to be completed no later than the Friday of the week they receive the report.  Missing assignments (not due to an absence) will be deemed a zero.  Any missing assignment that is turned in, after it is due, will be treated as a correction and averaged with a zero to determine a final grade.

*Corrections must be completed on a separate sheet of paper & stapled to the original. All work must be shown.  Only one attempt at corrections is permitted per assignment/quiz.  The final grade will be based on the average of the original grade and the corrected grade.  No corrections will be allowed on tests.
