Weekly Grade -
Performance Tasks - Performance tasks include tests and projects that are assigned during and at the end of units.
*Note: Each student's grade will be an average of the total amount of weekly grades and performance tasks given each quarter. For example, if a student has earned (9) weekly grades of 90, (1) unit test of 85, and (2) project grades of 158 (70 + 88)... the final grade for the quarter can be calculated like this...
810 points (weekly grades) 9 x 90
+ 85 points (unit test)
+ 70 points + 88 points (2 project grades)
1,053 (total points)
÷ 12 (total number of assignments)
87.75% average for the quarter
