Grading Rationale

  • The grade is mostly based on projects created in the classroom, although in rarely occasions other types of assessments will be provided.
  • Every student’s project will be available on the Internet. The student’s electronic portfolio is the main source of evidence when considering his/her grade.
  • In most occasions many projects will be assess at once. It is parent’s responsibility to verify the student’s performance on a weekly basis.
  • Comparing the students’ e-portfolio with other students in the same period is the best way to see the student’s performance in the classroom.
  • The student is always responsible for completing every project even with a justified absent.
