ACCE is committed to maintaining achievement standards for all students and to providing a fair process for evaluating and reporting student progress that is understandable to students and their parents/guardians and relevant for instructional purposes. Students' grades are a reflection of mastery of content and engagement in practice. While specific procedures for grades may differ in each class, these are the general guidelines for grading at ACCE.
Assessment - 70%
Assessments are assignments that measure students’ mastery of a standard. Assessments must also be differentiated between summative and formative types. Formative assessments are to be conducted once a week and will equal 50% of a student’s overall grade. Summative assessments will make up 20% of a student’s overall grade.
Engagement in Practice - 30%
Assignments that allow PRACTICE with teachers, peers, and/or independently. Students must understand that while this is a lower percentage, it is essential to prepare for assessments. This includes tasks previously referred to as homework, classwork, participation, etc.
