Making the Grade
The grading system in math is a weighted one. Here is how it works:
FORMATIVE ASSESSMENTS= 20% of your final grade (HOMEWORK)
You get full credit for homework if you complete it, show your work, and miss less than half. If you miss more than half, you will have to redo the ones you miss. You get full credit for redos.
PROGRESSING ASSESSMENTS= 30% of your final grade (QUIZZES)
There will be a quiz once a week. I always let you know ahead of time when the quiz will be...NO POP QUIZZES! You will be able to retake a quiz.
SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENTS= 50% of your final grade (TESTS)
You must score at least an 80% on tests. If you have an off day and score below an 80%, you get to retake the test! Actually, regardless of what you score, you may retake any test, even if you score a 99%! Anyone who is retaking a test must complete the reteaching session and correctives activity; this is your "ticket" to retake! Then the next day, we retake the test. I always take the higher of the two scores.
Beatrice Middle School uses the following grading scale.
A = 93-100 B = 86-92 C = 78- 85 D = 70-77 F = Below 70
