 Grading Procedure

My class assignments are divided into two categories-Daily Work and Test. Students grades can be found at anytime by dividing total points possible into the total points earned for the nine weeks. Ex: 1000 points possible and 850 points earned would equal a 85% in the class. Grades can also be found using the student's login on iNow and is updated constantly throughout the year.
