Assessments (50%) - these are in class projects that we complete after we have gone through a unit on a specific topic. They usually happen later in the year. If it is a larger project, we may spend a couple classes completing it.
Classwork (50%) - this is work done in class. I may teach a new skill during class and have the students show me they have learned this new skill by replicating it on their computer.
Under the classwork category, I give entries for social skills. This grade shows how well they follow directions, do they respond to questions, how well do they help / interact with others.
