Welcome back and I hope you had a blessed, spiritual, relaxing Easter vacation.
I have changed my grading scale for this last MP, based on the remote learning. I would like to give credit for the work the kids are doing, as well as maintain quizzes and tests as assessments.
SO! Most assignments for the day WILL count as a percent of their grade and are called “remote learning assignments.” These will not be “graded” so to speak. Essentially, there will be an assignment and as long as they do it, and in some way show they did it (IXL I just check the website, sometimes they submit a picture, or “I did it” suffices if there is nothing else to post.) They will receive a 100 for that assignment. However, if they do NOT do the assignment, or in some way show me they did it, they receive a zero for that assignment.Quizzes and tests will continue to work the same as always.
Example: If they get an 88 on IXL for an IXL assignment the score in my gradebook is a 100 because they completed the assignment. If they do an Edmodo q&a and get 3 wrong, they will still get a 100 in my gradebook for completing the assignment. But if they don’t do the assignment, they will get a zero.
Any questions just ask!!! I am going to try this to see how it works. I want them receiving credit for the work they are putting it. But i also do not want to “harm” their grades as we are still figuring this out, adn they work they do from home cannot compare to what they do in class, so I will be as fair and patient as possible through this process, as I hope you will also. Let’s work together for SUCCESS!!!
