  • Grading Procedure

    When possible, I allow 3 opportunities to submit work:

    1st opportunity (Original Due Date) - Students have the opportunity to receive 100% credit for the assignment.  If I haven't received the work, NM is entered for this assignment.
     
    2nd opportunity (Typically a week later) - Students have the opportunity to receive 70% credit for the assignment.  If I haven't received the work, the NM is changed to NG.
     
    3rd opportunity (Typically a week later) - Students have the opportunity to receive 50% credit for the assignment.  If I haven't received the work, the NG is changed a 0.  At this point, student can not make up this assignment.

    Are you missing a grade for something you submitted in Canvas?  Make sure you check Canvas for comments.  If you accidentally send me the wrong file, I send you a comment and give you an opportunity to resubmit the assignment. 
  • Speaking the code...

    When you look at your grades in Active Student (or Active Parent), you may notice different codes rather than a numeric grade. Below are explanations for the codes I use for your grades.

    NM - This assignment either hasn't been graded or wasn't submitted. This does not average in as a 0.
     
    NG - This assignment has been graded. Unfortunately, you didn't submit this assignment. This does factor in as a 0. You can submit the work for grading. However, I will take points for it being late.
     
     
     1  - If there are problems with an assignment that you submit before a deadline, I enter a 1 in the gradebook and add a comment in Canvas.  Typically, these issues include students accidentally submitting the template (without answers) or a different assignment. Remember, as we discuss in class, this is your chance to resubmit the work.  If you don't resubmit the work, the 1 becomes a 0. 
     
     0  - You did not submit this assignment. It is now too late to submit the work.
     
     X or XPE  - You are exempt from this assignment.
