During class this past week I reviewed submitting an assignment via Google Classroom. For assignment 001-8 students submitted a logo made with Google Drawing. Because of some changes in scheduling and number of class meetings, I have revamped grading structure for tech assignments. (I will also be working with classroom teachers on curriculum projects that integrate technology tools.)
Assignments will be receiving letter grades such as VG, G, S according to the established criteria for the project. For the logo assignment, the following was used:
VG - assignment was completed according to directions and submitted on time
G - assignment was completed according to directions but submitted late
S - assignment was completed but some directions were not followed
When grades are entered into PowerSchool, in order to display the letter grade it is necessary to enter a number on the grade scale assigned to minor subjects. So in order for a VG to appear as a grade, a number from 90 to 94 would be entered. Since there are 5 different grades points in each letter range, I will be using the number in the middle of each range. For example a 92 for VG, and 88 for G, an 82 for S. Mathematically this allows for a student who receives two grades in a quarter (and that is likely all we might accomplish) the average will round to the higher. Here are some possible scenarios:
Student with 2 scores in a quarter: G, VG - quarter average is VG
Student with 3 scores in a quarter: G, G, VG - quarter average is G.
For the logo itself, group 8B had a deadline of this week with the blog post due by the end of next week. ( Oct. 9) Then 8A will have their opportunity to work on the same project while 8B is in health class.
