Portfolio/records: In your portfolio you should include one of your writing assignments from this quarter. You can also take a screen shot of one of the online quizzes. You could save any other assignment that’s different. Choose things that are neat and well kept.

This is how you find your grade: add up all the grades you have been recording for this quarter. Add up your scores and write that number down.

Divide your score by total possible.  Move the decimal point over two places to the right. In the next box over, write the number in front of the decimal (something between 1 and 100). This is your percent grade. In the next box over write your letter grade. Anything starting with a 9 is an A. Anything starting with an 8 is a B. Anything starting with a 7 is a C and so forth. If you have everything perfect, then your grade is 100. That’s an A too.

Your goal is to get an A for the course at the end of the year. Go back and look at where you lost points. What can you do to avoid losing those points in the next quarter?
