Grade Updates: I generally update/publish grades on School Loop every Monday afternoon. This includes all homework, in-class work, quizzes, tests and late/absent work that was turned in the week prior. So if a student says they turned in an assignment, it will show up in the School Loop gradebook by the the next Monday. The exception to this are essays and projects which may take up to a few weeks to grade.
If there is a discrepancy between the student's records and the School Loop gradebook, the student needs to see me ASAP and show me the assignment in question to rectify the situation. All assignments that have been turned in on time will have a stamp on them as proof.
Late work: I take late work for half credit up to one class period late.
Absent work: Work missed due to an excused absence is worth full credit if it is completed and submitted by the next class period after the student returns to school. An agenda for each day is posted in the Notes section of my class's School Loop page, so an absent student can see what they missed in class (notes, activities, quizzes, homework, etc.) for that day. Also, homework assignments are posted in the School Loop gradebook and corresponding handouts, notes, etc. are in the class locker. Missed quizzes and tests need to be made up in tutorial within a week of the test date.
