Grading Policy

Your final grade will reflect your mastery of the skills learned throughout the whole semester.  This will come from many places.  Your common assessments, quizzes, tests, essays, homework, in-class work, and final exam will all be a major component of your grade.  Most of your work will be completed in class.  However, when you receive homework, it is there to help you be on track with the rest of the class.  All homework is designed to assist students in moving toward mastery of the reading, writing and grammar skills being taught, so please take homework seriously.  You will never have “busy work” that will not help you succeed in class and in real life.
