This class utilizes a point system. Every assignment will be worth a different amount of points, depending on its importance. For example, a test would be worth more than a homework assignment. There will be many assessment opportunities throughout each marking period, and a wide variety of skills will be assessed.
When you get a grade, it will look like this: 5/10. To figure out the percentage, divide the top number by the bottom number and multiply by 100%. Writing will be graded using a rubric, which you will be created with your input before the assignment is due.
If you are not happy with a grade because you know you could do better, please see me about how we can solve that problem.
