    Grading Policy

    Each term’s final grade will be based on the total number of points that you accumulate.  Tests will be worth more than quizzes, and quizzes will be worth more than homework/classwork. Your average will then be determined by dividing the number of points that you earned by the number of total points that all the assessments and assignments add up to.
