Homework Grading Scale

Page history last edited by Russell 8 years, 8 months ago
In-Class/Routine Home Work
 
Students are graded on the timely completion of their homework and in-class work. Students who develop time management skills and prioritize responsibilities are preparing themselves for similar skills necessary in adulthood. Criterion for in-class and homework grading is as follows:
 
Most routine homework is graded using the simple ten-point grading scale described below:
 
  • 10  (100%)  A score of ten is given to those assignments that demonstrate consistently sophisticated thinking and application of concepts. The student's skill and knowledge are immediately apparent. These assignments are well-written, thoughtful, insightful, and look good as well. Impressive "A" level work all around, with maybe a couple minor slip-ups.
  • 8-9 (80-90%)  A score of eight or nine is given to those assignments that demonstrate good understanding and application of the concepts. These assignments generally lack the consistency of those graded ten, yet are still well-written, thoughtful, and obviously show the student took the time to present quality work.
  • 7  (70%)  A score of seven is given to those assignments that are complete, yet lack full answers or application of the concepts. These assignments may give the "short" answer that is accurate yet fails to provide significant investigation. A seven is also given where the student's demonstration of knowledge and/or skill is obviously inconsistent, and most answers do not meet the standards of an eight.
  • 6  (60%)  A score of six is given to those assignments that reflect little understanding, comprehension and skill. Most answers on these assignments are altogether too brief to demonstrate insightful thinking, yet the responses do demonstrate a passable level of grade-appropriate knowledge and skill. A six may also be given to an assignment that does not demonstrate care in preparation.
  • 5 (50%) A score of five is given to those assignments that do not demonstrate a passable level of grade-appropriate knowledge and/or skill. A five may also be given if the student's submission is missing a key aspect of the assigned work. Assignments scored a five do reflect some level of understanding and skill, yet not to an acceptable standard.
  • 1  (See Teacher)  A score of one is a marker that the student must see the teacher in order to clarify some aspect of the assignment. This meeting with the teacher might be a simple matter of clarifying a sentence, or it could result in a request that the student re-submit a revised, improved version of the same assignment. A one is to be considered a temporary grade unless the student does not follow-up with the teacher, in which case the grade of one will remain.
  • 0  (not submitted)  A 0 is assigned when no work is submitted or the student did not complete a majority of the assignment.

 

Certain "quick" assignments may simply be visually checked for an acceptable level of completion. These minor assignments are graded as follows:
 
  • 5 (100%) A score of five means that upon visual inspection and review the student obviously fully understood and applied the necessary skill and knowledge. Tbe student's work is extensive, including all necessary details plus more. An "outstanding" piece of work.
  • 4 (80%) A score of four means that upon visual inspection and review the student mostly understood and applied the necessary skill and knowledge. All of the main, important items are included, with detail present on some areas while not in others. A "good, solid" piece of work. 
  • 3 (60%) A score of three means that upon visual inspection and review the student somewhat understood and applied the skill and knowledge. The assignment may include the "bare essentials" but lacks key, relevant detail. Assignments scored a three almost always are of low quality, often "thrown together" just before class.
  • 0 (not prepared) A score of zero is assigned when the student is not prepared to show his or her "quick check" assignment. There is not enough evidence of knowledge or skill to assign a score.
