Breakdown of Grading:

Grades will be taken on a regular basis and can include, but are not limited to, classroom activities (Code.org puzzles), projects, and quizzes. I grade using a Total Point System.

For total point’s grades, I add the total points received for the entire grading period and divide by the total points possible for that period. For example, if there were 1000 points possible for all assignments this grading period and you earned 936, we could find out your overall grade by dividing 936 by 1000. This would give you a grade of 93.6%.

Grading Scale:

A.....93-100

B.....85-92

C.....75-84

D.....70-74

F.....Below 70
