Dear English Reading and Writing for Grades 2 - 3 Students and Families,
As you may have already noticed, some significant changes were made in the TeacherEase gradebook about two weeks ago. Originally, student overall letter grades and percentages were determined through weighted categories. Since this original gradebook style produced low and inaccurate grades, I decided to change the gradebook to be points based. Student letter grades and percentages will now be determined using a points system. Total # of points earned/Total # of points possible is the formula to determine overall percentages and letter grades. The more points an assignment is worth means that it has a larger impact towards your grade. The grading scale is still the same. This will apply to both semesters.
