**Evaluation: (ADJUST TO MEET YOUR CURRICULUM)**

At the end of the marking period, the teacher will calculate students’ grades from tests, daily quizzes, specific assignments, etc. Letter grades will be assigned by the scale below.

Student scores that result in .05 or higher should be rounded up. The following percentage scale applies.

100 - 91.5 = A

91.4 - 89.5 = A-

89.4 - 87.5 = B+

87.4 - 81.5 = B

81.4 - 79.5 = B-

79.4 - 77.5 = C+

77.4 - 71.5 = C

71.4 - 69.5 = C-

69.4 - 67.5 = D+

67.4 - 61.5 = D

61.4 - 59.5 = D-

59.4 - 0 = E

Grades will be rounded up only to the tenth place during this calculation. Students will only earn a passing grade for a marking period if they achieve at or above 59.45%, which rounds to 59.5%.

**TO CALCULATE FINAL SEMESTER GRADE**

The final semester grade is based on a composite of two nine-weeks’ grades and the final examination/culminating assessment/project. Each nine weeks is worth approximately 43%, and the semester exam/project or District Culminating Activity assessment is worth approximately 14%.
