When checking your grades or parents are checking the parent portal, your grades are listed as the following:
Category 1 = Quizzes & Tests 35%
Category 2 = Labs & Projects 35%
Classwork/Homework = Daily Grades = 30%
The 2nd nine weeks (T2) and the 4th nine weeks (T4) exams are cummulative, meaning those nine week exams cover the units learned in that semester.
Because this is a high school credit elective, high school courses have semester exams so cummulative exams are given at the end of the 2nd and 4th nine weeks.
Semester 1 = T1 + T2
Semester 2 = T3 + T4
Final Grade = Semester 1 + Semester 2
