Green Run Collegiate Grading and Evaluation Practices

 

Green Run Collegiate Grading and Evaluation Practices

Grading Categories

  1. “Guided Practice” assignments are 20% of the total grade. Short-term assignments in which students develop and describe skills, content, and concepts.
  2. “Independent In-process” assignments are 35% of the total grade. Formative Assessments meant to inform instruction.
  3. “Summative” assignments are 45% of the total grade. Evaluations in which students demonstrate mastery of skills, content, and concepts within a given unit.

Late Work

  1. Green Run Collegiate defines late work as any assignment submitted past the deadline.
  2. A late assignment submitted by the next class will result in a 20% deduction from its overall grade.
  3. A missing assignment must be completed prior to the end of the current unit to avoid receiving a zero. In the case that a missing assignment is due at the end of a unit, the due date of the late assignment will then be extended to one week after the close of the unit; assignments submitted the next class will receive a 20% deduction, and assignments submitted afterwards, within the one week timespan, will receive credit as determined by the teacher.

Make Up Work

  1. Per division attendance policy, students will be allowed to make up all assignments that affect the course grade. Students who are absent and elect to turn in make-up work will need to communicate with their teacher(s) regarding missing assignments.
  2. Green Run Collegiate defines make up work as graded tasks assigned or due on the day of absence. It is the student's responsibility to make up assignments within a reasonable amount of time through collaboration with the teacher.

 

Zeros

  1. Teachers will implement the use of a zero for a missing assignment. This will be reflected immediately in the gradebook when an assignment is missing.
  2. If a missing assignment is not turned in by the end of the unit, the grade will remain a zero.

Extra Credit

  1. Extra credit is available to students only if all work is completed.
  2. Green Run Collegiate defines extra credit as enrichment to extend student understanding.
  3. Extra credit is optional for teachers to implement.
