Tests

__CONDUCT BOOKS NEED TO BE SIGNED BY A PARENT/GUARDIAN AND RETURNED TO THE HOMEROOM TEACHER BY THE SECOND DAY OF THE SCHOOL WEEK. THE BOOKS MUST BE SIGNED, EVEN IF A STUDENT DID NOT LOSE CONDUCT POINTS OR MISS A HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT.__

**To double check grades**:

Add all tests/projects together and divide by the total number given. (This will give you a test average.) Test/Lab Average is then multiplied by .65 (if the teacher does not give quizzes, then the test/project category will be worth 70% of the grade and then therefore would multiply by 0.7 instead of 0.65). **You must add the total points the student earned and then add the total points possible. Then take the total points earned and divide that by the total points possible. This will give you the test/project average. You __cannot__ divide each individual test to get a percentage. Mathematically this will not work.**

Ex:

**Test 1: 84 points out of a possible 100 points**

**Test 2: 96 points out of a possible 100 points**

**Lab 1: 18 points out of a possible 20 points**

**Project 1: 43 points out of a possible 50 points**

**Add what the student earned 84+96+18+43 = 241**

**Add the total possible points 100+100+20+50 = 270**

**Now divide 241 ÷ 270 = 0.89259259**

**Now multiply by 100 to get the percentage =89.2592593 which will be rounded to 89.3**

**test/project average = 89.3 x 0.65 = 58.045**

**Add all quizzes together and divide by the total number given (the same way as explained above in the example for the test category). This will give you a quiz average. The quiz average is then multiplied by .05.**

**Ex: quiz average is 90 x 0.05 = 4.5**

**Multiply the exam grade by .25.**

**Ex. exam grade = 91 x 0.25 = 22.75**

Homework and Classwork grade will be multiplied by .05. If there are multiple homework grades, you will compute them the same way as explained above in the test category.

**Ex. homework/participation average = 98 x 0.05 = 4.9**

**Add all totals together. 58.045 + 4.5 + 22.75 + 4.9 = 90.195. Therefore the student receives a 90B as his/her report card grade.**
