Classroom Policies:
  • Grading: All of my courses follow the District 218 grading scale, and the 40/40/20 model for defining the final grades for the course.
  • Revisions: Students are given the opportunity to revise tests, quizzes, and CUAs to earn up to half credit back. For example, if the student takes a quiz and get a 70% on it, the highest grade the student can get on a revision is an 85%.
  • Late Work: Students may submit classwork/homework and CUAs up to 168 hours (7 days) late. After that, it becomes a permanent zero in the gradebook.
    • e.g. if a classroom worksheet is due Friday at 3:15 PM, that student has until the following Friday at 3:15 PM to submit it.
    • CUAs can be submitted up to 168 hours (7 days late). However, each day a CUA is late the final grade is lowered by 5%. After 7 days, the CUA is no longer eligible to be turned in for any credit.
