Assignments, quizzes, and tests
All graded work will be in the form of assignments, quizzes, and tests. Quizzes and tests will be announced ahead of time and must be completed by students independently.
Tests will evaluate student knowledge on major and minor topics. Notification of test days will be given in advance. Students are expected to study/practice to prepare for each test. Tests are to be done independently by the student.
Quizzes will evaluate student progress on specific learning objectives. Advance notice will be given for quizzes. When possible, students should study/practice for quizzes. Quizzes are to be done independently by the student.
Quarterly grades are based on the following:
Tests 40% Quizzes 40% Assignments 20%
Absences and Extra Help
If for some reason, a student can not make it to the class, the material will still be available for students in Google classroom. Tests and quizzes can be made up at school. I give extra help on the morning of quizzes and tests. These days will be announced ahead of time on my Google classroom page.
Although Google Classroom will provide you with the information you need, the teachers of team 7 Yellow have a website that will allow you to visit individual teacher websites here: https://www.wappingersschools.org/Page/5856
