  • Formative Assessments (FA), Skill Practice done at home or in class (10%)


Grading:  A point system is used for grading all work.  Points for different assignments will vary according to the length and level of difficulty.  Students will have the opportunity to earn points in a variety of ways: Summative Assessments, Formative Assessments, Skill Practice, and group activities.   

Summative Assessments – these will be announced in advance and may cover any material from class, your skill  practice, or the text.  These are challenging – you will need to prepare for them!  All summative  assessments are kept in a student file.  They are available for review upon request, but may not be removed from the classroom. 


Power School will be updated on a regular basis.  I encourage you and your parents

to check it frequently!  That way you will always know how you are doing and where you can improve.


  • Must be completed each night it is given
  • Is a chance for you to practice and learn the skills and concepts
  • Provides you with the chance to discover what you know and what you need to work
  • Should be kept in your notebook to support your preparation for any type of assessment
  • Credit is given for COMPLETED homework which is done ON TIME

Exams:  Students will take a midterm and a final exam.  The two grades are combined to make the exam grade, which is 20% of the overall course average.  Each quarter counts for 40% of the overall course average.  The exam grades do not affect either quarter grade, only the overall course average. 

Academic Integrity:  Tolland High School is committed to academic integrity.  Academic dishonesty is a serious offense and carries serious consequences.  Academic dishonesty, including but not limited to plagiarism, cheating, and presenting someone else’s work as one’s own, will result in a grade of zero for the assignment and a referral to building administration. 

Absences:  If you are absent you are responsible for all missed notes, material, and assignments.  Prompt completion of makeup work is critical.  It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the missed assignments and turn them in on time, as well as, scheduling a time to make up any missed assessments. Students are responsible for obtaining assignments in advance when they know that they will be absent (e.g. field trips). 

Getting Help:  Extra help is available after school. You must schedule a time to meet prior to the after school session.  It is expected that the student has participated in class and has attempted the skill practice, and comes to the extra-help session with specific questions.   Please, don’t hesitate to ask questions in class, and don’t wait until the last minute for help!  There is also an online website,  Page xxiii of the text lists codes for lesson quizzes, online tutors, etc.
