Exams and Grading Guidelines
We believe that all children can learn and should be given the appropriate time and instruction to do so. Tests will be administered during each grading period to measure students' mastery of skills.
Student grades will be based on weekly tests, major tests, daily grades, homework grades, projects, reports, recitation, teacher observations, etc.
A minimum of nine (9) grades to include daily grades and test grades shall be recorded for each student in each academic course during each nine (9) weeks period.
The nine weeks grade is computed by counting extension activities (daily grades, homework, tests, projects, etc.) 75% and the nine weeks examination 25%.
Semester examinations shall be administered at the end of the second and fourth midterms.
The first semester average is computed by counting the average of the first term two times and the average of the second term two times, which will be 75% of the grade. The value assigned to the semester examination is 25%.
The second semester average is computed by counting the average of the third term two times and the average of the fourth term two times, which will be 75% of the grade. The second semester examination, which only covers material taught the third and fourth terms, counts 25%.
No second and fourth term tests will be given; therefore, the grades earned on other tests and activities will count 100%.
The following denotes the school year on a seven (7) period day:
- The school year is divided into two (2) semesters.
- Each semester is divided into two (2) nine weeks grading period.
