Category Weights

  • Evidence of Learning (65%)

    • Evidence of learning consists of both formative and summative assessments that include, but are not limited to:

      • Tests

      • Quizzes

      • Projects

      • Exit Tickets

      • Other means of assessing learning (this could include homework**, only if it is graded and feedback is provided)

  • Participation (35%)

    • Considerations for evaluating participation must be appropriate and consistent regardless of the learning model - full in-person, hybrid or full distance learning

    • Simply attending a synchronous learning session will not count towards participation.  Conversely, inability to attend in a synchronous learning session cannot be held against a student.

    • Considerations that meet the standard of active participation include, but are not limited to:

      • Contributing to academic discourse (i.e. in-person, Google Meet, commenting/messaging, etc.)

      • Active engagement of the learning process

      • Completion of assigned tasks, activities and/or assignments, including homework**

**As per BOE policy 6154, homework cannot account for more than 10% of a student’s grade
