Assessments and Grading

Grading System

Grades are based on individual participation, paired and group activities, homework, projects, skits and dialogues, and written quizzes.  Each will be assigned different point values that will be added and divided by the total amount of points possible. Please check Powerschool for regularly updated grade reports.
Grades in Spanish will be determined by the following categories:
Homework           25%
Participation            20%
Quizzes                  25%
Projects    30%


Homework will be assigned several times each week, and should take roughly 5-10 minutes to complete.  Please copy the day’s assignment from the board.  Homework must be completed on time.  I never accept LATE work.  If the assignment is partially completed, you will receive partial credit. 

Class Participation

Participation will be self-assessed every quarter.  Students are encouraged to participate actively and to remain on-task during pair activities.  Your preparation for class, participation in discussions and activities, and your tenacity to speak in Spanish will determine your weekly progress.
