Students’ grades are based on a number of assessments:
- Classwork – how well they are going with core MathSpace tasks
- Investigative tasks – specific mini-projects that show how a students apply their knowledge
- Checkpoint quizzes – these online mini-tests are set every two or three weeks to summarise their progress
- Tests – once a term a pencil and paper test is set that covers all the topics taught that term.
If a student misses an assessment they must speak to their teacher as soon as possible to see if there is an opportunity to resit.These marks are transferred into Schoology on a regular basis so students and parents can monitor progress. The Schoology grades should only be regarded as indicative though, as a teacher can take other circumstances into account when making their final judgement.
But the way to good grades is to work hard, work consistently and submit work on time.
