Home > Deafness & ASL > Grading Policy
This class follows a typical grading scale:
Timeliness & Quality
Quizzes will be graded based on the number of correct answers the student gives on each quiz. Students may retake quizzes to improve quiz scores. Quizzes that students make up after missing class are not penalized for being late.
Students cannot retake the midterm or final exams.
Homework assignments are due at the beginning of the class period, NOT at the end of the school day. Homework assignments should be emailed or printed PRIOR to students coming to class; homework assignments done or completed during the class period they are due are late.
Students may turn in revised assignments up until the end of the Edison quarter.
If a student is absent, he or she is responsible for checking what assignments are due. Students have the same number of class days missed to make up assignments before the assignments are late; so for example, if a student misses three classes in a row, the student has three class days to make up missing assignments before the assignments are graded as late.
Assignment Point Values
Students' grades will be as objective as possible and reflect their performance
in the course, which will be measured by the following approximate point value
of class work:
Total percentage from homework, in-class assignments, quizzes, and Deaf community
events: 90% of grade
Unlike Jesuit grades online, which are cumulative leading up the semester grade,
quarter grades for Edison classes as reported online are averaged together for
semester grades. For example, semester 1 grade is based on 45% 1st quarter,
45% 2nd quarter, and 10% semester final exam.
