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.

HW turned in on time with no errors = 100% HW turned in late with no errors = 75%
HW turned in on time with errors = 75% HW turned in late with errors = 50%
Revised HW orginially turned in on time & stapled to the original copy = 100% Revised HW orginially turned in late & stapled to the original copy = 75%

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:

  • Homework: approx. 30 points/week for 19 weeks = approx. 570 (about 31.5% of grade)
  • Vocabulary quizzes & midterm exams: approx. 20 points/week for 19 weeks = approx. 380 (about 24% of grade)
  • In-class assignments & activities: approx. 30/week for 19 weeks = approx. 570 (about 31.5% of grade)
  • Deaf community event and report: 30 points for attendance and 20 points for 250-word report (about 3% of grade)

Total percentage from homework, in-class assignments, quizzes, and Deaf community events: 90% of grade

  • Semester final exam: 10% 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.
