FCPS Secondary Grading and Reporting website Grading Policies - Grades are determined by calculating the percentage of total points earned. - Grades will be calculated using a rolling (continuous) gradebook.Generally speaking, assigned work in the course will fall into one of five categories1. Ungraded Homework – this encompasses watching videos / reading tutorials. Assigned as new topics are introduced.2. Graded Homework (10 points / assignment) – involves completing supplemental tutorials. Assigned <5 times over the duration of the course.3. Short Assignments (5 points / assignment) – in class demonstrations of concepts. Assigned as new topics are introduced.4. Major Assignments (25 points / assignment) – larger labs intended to demonstrate proficiency of a concept. Assigned several times throughout the course.5. Outstanding Work (20% of points assigned on Major Assignments) – Assigned in conjunctionwith Major Assignments. Outstanding Work is additional work beyond the stated rubric of the major assignment that demonstrates mastery / self-directed additional work with a topic. Assessed when finished or at the end of the course.Quarter Grades: The quarter grade represents the state of the points average taken at the end of the quarter. Note that this will likely not be the mathematical midpoint of points accumulated, as there tend to be smaller introductory assignments in the first quarter of the course.● No one assignment or assessment will count for more than 30% of the total quarter grade.● Homework is limited to no more than 10% of the total quarter grade ● Per grading and reporting, there will be at a minimum 9 grades per quarter.
