Assessment and Grading

Grades are updated when a unit ends. Generally, this occurs at the end of each month. Units longer in duration are weighted greater than units of a shorter duration. To succeed in this class you will need to be:

On time

Prepared daily

Responsible

Mindful of classroom rules and expectations

GRADING PROCEDURES

What parts make up your overall grade?

Skill tests - one or two administered per unit 

Written tests (administered in most units) and reading assignments

Dress/Tardy/Conduct - dressed properly, on time and good conduct

Effort - gives best effort at all times

Each part of your grade is equally weighted in most units. You start out with a 100% in the dress/tardy/conduct and 95% effort portions of your grade. By not being dressed for class, arriving late (unexcused), misbehaving or not trying, your grade is lowered with each infraction.  This starts over at the beginning of each unit.

What can you do to improve your grade?

Extra credit opportunities are available throughout the year by participating in PALA (Presidential Active Lifestyle Award) and/or by submitting reading assignments on fitness, health or a sport.

Grading Scale:
A= 90%-100%
B= 80%-89%
C= 70%-79%
D= 60%-69%
F= 0%-59%
