• New Grading Procedures

    I have decided that from now on there will only be one grade in the grade book each week for all of your Articles and Videos. In order to be marked complete for the Articles and Videos you must have completed at least 70% of them. You should still be completing all of them since you will need to know that content for the Exercises, Quizzes, and Tests. Exercises, Quizzes, and Tests will be graded individually and you must score a 70% or higher to be marked complete.

    Please review the following instructions. Pay especially close attention to the last bullet. 

    - Every week assignments will be posted at the beginning of the week and will be due that Friday.

    - Assignments are all self guided and primarily will consist of articles, videos, exercise questions, quizzes and tests.

    - Everything is on-line and nothing needs to be printed or copied.

    - You are required to read ALL articles and view all videos.

    - The questions at the end of articles are for checking your own understanding only. You will not need to submit those, however you will be responsible for knowing that information for the Exercise Questions, Quizzes, and Tests.

    - Some assignments require you to answer multiple choice questions electronically. These will be the Exercise Questions, Quizzes, and Tests. Your results will be tracked by Khan Academy. 

    - Exercise Questions, Quizzes, and Tests can be tried multiple times. These will be counted as incomplete until you score a 70% or higher.
