Academic marks will be weighted in the following manner.
20% of the quarterly grade will be from graded assignments and activities that are considered Academic Practice, when a student is learning something for the first time or is still in the early stages of learning the material. Academic practice grades generally come from homework assignments, in-class assignments and some quizzes, which are formative in nature.
80% of the quarterly grade will be from graded assignments and activities that area considered Academic Achievement, when a student has had sufficient instruction, practice and support and can demonstrate mastery. Academic achievement grades generally come from tests, quizzes and projects, which are summative in nature.
