End of the Year Tasks
All marks will be entered using power school and will be broken down as follows:
Quarter 1- 40% Quarter 2- 40% Semester Exam- 20% = 100%
And within each Quarter:
Formative (20%)- AKA- day to day class work. I do not plan on assigning "homework" but if you do not use our class time effectively you can plan on completing the work on your own time.
Summative (70%)- Not all tests and assignments will be weighted equally. The more work that goes into a task, the more marks it will be worth. This information will be communicated with you as I enter marks in power school.
Conduct Grade (10%)- From time to time a conduct grade will be granted based on your behavior, attitude and work habits in class.
