Per the KEC Handbook: 1. The KEC uses, 90, 80, 70, and 60 as percentage guidelines for letter grades. 90% or above = A 80-89% = B 70-79% = C 60-69% = D 59% or lower = F 2. Included in the grade should be written work, tests, projects, attendance, and behavior. Points for attendance and behavior help reflect the whole student in the grade they earn. 30% of a students grade is based on attendance/behavior/participation. For example: 15 points per day may be designated for attendance and behavior. If a student is absent, the point value is 0. The student still has the right to make up their written work, but they cannot recover their attendance points. Remember, 2% of a student's grades may be deducted for each unexcused absence. If a student is in class, but behaves so poorly that they disrupt the environment (this includes sleeping), they also might receive only 10, 0r5, or 0 points in this category for the day. Repeated absences and poor behavior then are reflected in their grades in an objective way. Culinary Arts 2012-2013I have designated 10 points per day for the student's attendance/behavior/participation points. If a student is absent they receive 0 points for the day. Because much of our class time is spent in our kitchen labs participation is crucial. I do not grade on culinary skill for Culinary Arts I students because I do understand that for most students the kitchen is a place to learn the culinary skills. Participation within their work teams, professional respect towards others and positive attitudes in the work place are what I am looking for with the students. Points are deducted from a students daily 10 points depending on the severity of the offense. Grade percentagesAs per the KEC Handbook, 30% of a student's grades are based on the daily 10 points and 70% of their grade is based on homework assignments, team and class projects, exams, presentations and anything else that is assigned a grade value. For example:If there are 70 points possible for attendance/participation and the student has received 65 points their attendance/participation percentage is 93%. 30% of this score is 28% (93x.3=28)..If there are 150 grading points available and the student has recieved 120 points then their grade percentage is 80%. 70% of this score is 56% (80x.7=56). Their overall score is 84% (56% + 28%). Their grade is a B The grading scale for our class is as follows:97-100% A+ 87-89% B+ 77-79% C+ 67-69% D+ 59% or lower = F 94-96% A 84-86% B 74-76% C 64-66% D 90-93% A- 80-83% B- 70-73% C- 60-63% D- |
