Sra. Kilburn´s Spanish 2 Finals and Grading Policies

Assignments close Wed. Aug. 10 and Final Exam closes Friday Aug 12 at midnight.

Only work submitted by the deadline can be included in the grade.

School districts, not NCVPS, grants student's grades.

NC State Board of Education policy GCS-A-016 allows each school district to set the weight of final exams in determining the final grade for a course. Districts must calculate final exams at least 20%; NCVPS calculates its teacher-created final exams AND final projects as 25% in its final grade but since NCVPS is a supplement to our public schools, each student's district will make the final decision on how much the student's exam will count in his or her final grade. Therefore, students may see a difference in their final grades if the district weighs these exams more or less than 25%. The district's determination of final exam percentages outweighs NCVPS's decision to count final exams as 25% of a student's grade. Determination of the final course grade is the district's decision. **This is in reference to NCVPS teacher-generated final exams, NOT the NC Final Exams or EOCs.

How can you tell how your student is doing?

On the course landing page, on the left hand margin, there is a link called "Grades". If you open this, you can see which assignments have been done and the grade they received. The students have been told to print out the Schedule of Assignments and use it as a check list as a way to keep track of completed work as well.
