Subject: Re: grades and grading

My split is very simple - 50% projects/tests, 25% daily points, 25%
sketchbooks. Everything either falls under a project, sketchbook (we put
all handouts, worksheets, etc in our sketchbook) or participation. AND
since all directly connect to the success of another - if sketchbook
grades are high but daily and projects are low I question who is doing
the work. If daily is low then projects are low because of the lack of
work ethics. Warm-ups in my grade book would be counted under
sketchbooks, short assingments under projects. Since I have so many
classes I keep it VERY simple. :-)

I have spent my morning and most of the afternoon (so far) searching the
archives for grades and grading. It was a topic I remember discussing
back in May or maybe it was June. Anyway I still haven't resolved what I
am going to do. I was wondering if someone could share with me their
specific examples of how they break down grading projects.
-Unit Projects: 40%

-Short assignments 20%
-Daily Grade 10%

-Sketchbooks 10%
-Warm Ups 10%

-Handouts & Worksheets 10%
