Mrs. Alsept’s Grading Policy

Letter grades will be assigned as stated in the student manual:

90 – 100          A

80 - 89            B

70 - 79            C

60 – 69            D

All classes will follow a point system. Students are assigned points accordingly:

Classwork: 10 – 20 points

Homework: 10 – 30 points

Quizzes: 20 – 50 points

Projects: 100 points (some may count twice)

Tests: 100 points

Labs: 100 points

Essays: 10 – 40 points

Materials: periodic check for materials – 5 points


  • Test and labs will account for approximately 50% of total grade. Tests are always announced several days in advance. Those students who show a pattern of being absent every test day will receive an alternate test covering the same questions and standards but formatted in a different style (mostly essay).
  • More difficult units may have more class and homework assignments than easier units.
  • Students missing assignments due to absenteeism will have a certain amount of time to make up missed work as outlined in the student manual. Work turned in excessively late may carry a penalty.
  • To encourage students to come prepared for class, regular checks are held for books, index cards, calculators, etc. Yes, students should have a calculator of their own.
  • Students that have to be removed from class due to misbehavior or disrespect still have the responsibility of making up missed work and are still responsible for any quizzes or tests assigned the following day.
  • Section Review assignments assigned in chemistry are extremely important as this type of assignment provides students with experience in reading and interpreting technical content, a type of reading format they will find on HSAP and SAT exams.
  • Students will be allowed two restroom passes per nine weeks. 
  • Unauthorized student use of cell phones or similar communicating devices will be handled according to district policy.
