Homework will be assigned and graded as we finish a lesson. Except homework about several times a week.
ALEKS is graded based on topics mastered. The goal for 8th grade math is 420 topics mastered of the 453 in the program for the year.
This is by far where the majority of the class grade comes from. A topic test is given at the end of each topic which usually spans 2-3 weeks of class time. For some topics, a quiz will be given midway through the topic.
For the 2021-2022 school year, I will allow students to use a 3x5 notecard on most tests but not on quizzes. They may not be shared with another student and they will need to be turned in with the test.
