A few details to help with Assignment Details and Tracking

1st Semester

Focus 1
Assignment Name

Interim Progress Report Grading Details:

There will be at least 6 grades factoring in to generate a progress report. One zero and less than a 100 in any other could result in less than a 70. Several major grades come in at the end of the 6 weeks...with the exception of a few grades at the beginning of the 6 weeks to help substantiate the need for a progress report. For these early assignments, I will accept the work late, usually for a 70...but a temporary failing grade has to be recorded until the work is turned in. For some in-progress projects, the grade is recorded based on the completion of the rough draft. This may result in a low grade being recorded temporarily. All 6 weeks projects can be turned in by the end of the grading period for full credit.
