Edline Grade Symbols
In a previous blog entry, I incorrectly gave the grade equivalents for student work. I accidentally used the grade equivalents from my previous honors classes. Since all my classes this year are AP, these are the new percentages for AP work. The letters have the following meanings:
R = Redo, 80% Once the work is complete they will receive 95% for their grade
L = Late,80 %
I = Incomplete, 60% – If there is an “I” on your assignment, you have until next class to complete it.
M = Missing, 50% – This grade will be changed to a zero if the work is not turned in within two week of the posting on Edline.
