    At Miller Junior High we use a uniform grading scale.  Please refer to the Student Handbook online for the percentage breakdown and range for letter grades.  

    Tests      60%

    Quizzes    25% 

    Assignments/Practice 15% 

    ·     Tests will be given at the end of each chapter.  Quizzes will be given as needed. 

    •  Test Retakes require:
      • Completed test corrections
      • Completed retake ticket
      • Additional evidence of understanding of missed concepts
      • A meeting with your Teacher to make arrangements for test retake

    ·    Assignments/practice will be given every day.  If an assignment is not completed in class, then the assignment needs to be completed prior to our next class meeting.  Students generally have daily entry tasks.

    The grading for assignments/practice is as follows:

    Less than half problems completed = 0  

    Half but not all problems completed = 2

    All problems completed = 4 

    You can change a 0 or 2 to a 3 if you show that you have completed the assignment prior to the test.

    Late WorkLate work will be accepted until the day of the chapter test.

    Help!!!  You can come in before or after school or during lunch.  I am usually here at 7 a.m. and stay after until 4 p.m.  It really doesn't hurt!!
