  • 3 points – Classwork complete, homework not attempted
  • 3.5 points – Classwork complete, homework attempted but shows some confusion
  • 4 points – Classwork and homework complete, lesson objective achieved
  • 4.5 points – Classwork and homework completed correctly and extra credit attempted
  • 5 points – Nailed everything including the extra credit!

Assessments, roughly 25 points each: 2-3 per unit
