Grading Policy…. for fourth grade students all tests, quizzes, and assessments in all subject areas are scored on a scale of 100. Essays and extended responses for state exam practice, classwork, and homework are graded on rubrics with a value of 0-3 for extended responses and 0-4 for essays. Students will be given information regarding rubric scoring as lessons progress ,and extended responses and essays become more familiar. Full sentence responses on regular tests/quizzes are not graded using a rubric but are simply part of the overall values that contribute to a total of 100%. Projects done in class are given alpha grades and will be listed on Option C. Homework is checked daily, and missing homework is recorded. Continuance of missing homeworks will be viewed as a deficiency and will affect the student’s “personal progress” grades on their resport cards. Likewise, notice of “class participation” or lack thereof will affect this area also.
