Attendance is key for student understanding of the different computer applications. It is up to the student to ask the instructor or a classmate about work that was missed. The student has the same amount of time as days missed to make up any assignments.
Students will be given guidelines to how a grade was arrived upon with each individual program. Students will also be graded on a completion basis concerning textbook chapter questions, homework, and book programs.
Programs, questions, and vocabulary will be collected/checked on designated due dates. -5 points wilbe deducted for every day late except in cases of illness or other unforeseen circumstances. All programs will be completed in class, and the student will be able to work on a program from one of the computer labs or after school in my classroom if makeup time is needed.
A test will be given at the end of each unit of study, and quizzes will be given periodically throughout the marking period. This will enable me to better assess student understanding and/or struggles.
