Please bear with us as we move to a new standards-based grade book. We
are working to develop a system that will better communicate to you how
your student is performing in the Geometry classroom. We hope to have
many of the bugs worked out by the first week of September. Until that time, feel free to e-mail me with any questions you might have about your child's grade.

As of Friday, August 30, we should have 2 formative assessments entered into the grade book ... a Quick Quiz for Sec. 1.1 (out of 5 points) and a Quick Quiz for Sec. 1.2 (out of 5 points). Please understand that the primary purpose of my formative assessments is to give students quick feedback on their understanding of basic concepts as they move through the chapter. They are not designed to have a major effect on the students' semester grade, as each one accounts for a nominal percentage of the semester grade.

Our first semi-summative assessment ... a Mid-Chapter Quiz covering Sec. 1.1, 1,2 and 1.6 ... is scheduled for next Wednesday, Sept. 4.
