Grades are given on Common Formative Assessments, Quizzes, Tests, (Semester Exams) Projects, Research Papers and Notebooks. Your child's teacher should be giving at least two grades per week starting in the 1st nine week grading period.
Grades are not given on items to be considered student practice.
Grades should be a reflection of what degree the student has mastered a National Common Core Standard over all semester grade should be a reflection of what a student’s score on the New Mexico Standards Based Assessment is projected to be.
Most practice work will be done in the classroom or Tiger Up Time, very little should end up at home however if a student doesn't take advantage of TuT or Class Time, then the expectation is that it should go home as work to be done at home. The idea behind this practice is to have a licensed teacher/administrator/peer tutor in the room while practice is being done in the event a student needs help.
Tiger Up Time is designed to do these types of tasks:
