    Grades are based on the following:

    1.   Tests – Tests will be given at the end of each module. 

    Test Retake Policy: All students are eligible for test retakes. To be granted a test retake, a student must first complete assigned tasks given by the teacher during tutoring sessions. The score on the retake will replace the score of the first assessment even in the case that the retake score is lower. Retakes must be completed before the next module test. Retake requests will not be granted the last two weeks of each quarter.

    2.    Quizzes – Quizzes will be given throughout each module. The number of quizzes will vary depending on the length of the module.

    3.   Assignments (points vary) – Given daily and must be done on time. Homework/Classwork may be graded on accuracy or based on participation. Late HW Policy: Students who do not have their homework completed on time, will not earn full credit for late homework. Students have up to the day of each unit test to hand in late assignments.  Homework/Notebook Quizzes: Given randomly and will vary in points. These quizzes will be graded on accuracy. On these quizzes, students will be asked to copy selected problems out of their notebook from assignments they should have already completed.

     4.    Final Exam – The final exam is cumulative and is 20% of the entire semester grade.
