Grading Scale

Grading Scale

How Grades Work

Grades are computed using weighted categories on School Loop.  Assignments are labeled by category.  The categories with more weight are the more meaningful activities and measures of learning, and they count more toward your grade.  These weights are based on the guidelines from the school district. 

Bottom line: You cannot get your grade by adding up total points to find your percentage!  You also cannot ignore “lesser” categories—they all contribute to learning.
