• 7th Grade Science: Grading Policies

    Academic Letter Grades will be determined according to the following weighted categories:

    •  Tests/Quizzes:                                                65%
    •  Labs/Activities/Classwork/Homework:      35%

    Qualities of a Learner Grade will be determined according to learning behaviors as described in the GVMS Qualities of Learner Rubric in the student handbook.


    Grading FAQs:

    Late Assignments:

    • Assignments are expected to be completed and handed in on the due date.
    • If graded assignments are late, the grade will drop 10% each school day until submitted.
    • All work should be submitted before the conclusion of the unit.


    • There are no retakes on graded assignments; however, the student is encouraged to see their classroom teacher for opportunities to review the information.

    Extra Credit:

    • There is no extra credit. Multiple opportunities throughout the marking period encourage students to self-monitor learning of concepts and improve grades.


    *Please Note: These policies are consistent across the 7A, 7B, and 7C Science teachers.
