How to Check Your Grades Correctly
A = Absent on the day of the assignmentThis does not affect your average unless you fail to make up your assignment on time at which point, the grade is turned into a Z.Z = Late but still accepted for late creditThis counts like a 0.00 until the assignment is turned in.
- When looking at your grades, always check the column labeled "SCORE".
- The number one mistake when looking at grades through Home Access Center, is that people look at the column marked "PERCENTAGE".
- Even if an assignment is not graded, your percentage will read 0.00%.
- The "SCORE" column will let you know whether or not you actually have a zero.
Listed below is a key to help you understand values other than numbers that may appear in the "SCORE" column:
X = Exempt from the assignmentThis is either a drop grade or something that cannot be made up. This does not and will not affect your average.^ = Collected and checked but not yet gradedThis means I have checked to make sure you have turned in you work, but I have not yet entered a grade. This does not affect your average.BLANK = Not yet collected, not yet checked, and/or not yet graded
