Bio B Course Update 4

July 1, 2015 - Issue 4

Tip of the Week: Rubrics

For every dropbox assignment in the course, there is a rubric that explains how to earn the most points on the assignment. These are located in the content and you will briefly view them when submitting a file to the dropbox.

Please always be sure to read through the rubric before submitting assignments to maximize your score!

End of Week: Check Grades!

Grades are updated by the teacher daily. Zeros are entered for missing assignments from the student's schedule. Students and parents should review grades and notify the teacher of any issues. Students are encouraged to turn in missing work for partial credit according to GaVS late policy. (Click picture to see details.)

Remember to always read your assignment feedback.

Public School Students Take the Milestone Exam. Your school should arrange this for you.
