    Standard Based Grading

    In this course we will be using unit based grading, here's what that means:

    For each unit, there will be a percent assigned based on the amount of time we spend on the unit during the quarter. Within that percentage of time, you will receive a breakdown of grades for homework, quizzes, classwork, tests, etc. 

    Within each unit, this will be the grading policy:

    A (100%-90%)

    B (89%-80%)

    C (79%-70%)

    D (69%-60%)

    F (59%-0%)

     

    Assignment Weights:

    Tests 40%

    Quizzes/CW 50%

    Homework 10%
