Honors – Statistics Grading Rubric
Quizzes = 40%
NOTE: DUE TO THE REFLECTIONS BY STUDENTS’ AT THE END OF TERM 1. I HAVE DECIDED TO ALLOW ONE 3 INCH BY 5 INCH OR SMALLER NOTECARD OR PAPER THAT MAY CONTAIN NOTES. THERE WAS STRESS OVER REMEMBERING FORMULAS IN YOUR REFLECTIONS. I HAVE ALTERED THIS IN RESPONSE TO YOUR REFLECTIONS.
- There will be a quiz given most weeks.
- If you are absent for a quiz, you have one week to make it up after school (tues).
- The lowest quiz from each term is dropped.
- You may bring one 3 x 5 inch note card or piece of paper for notes.
Term Summative Test = 40%
- There will up to two tests and/or projects given each term. Tests/projects may not be made up for a new grade under any circumstance (all test grades are final).
- Tests are scaled according to the highest score. They highest score is changed to 100%, and the rest are adjusted accordingly. For example, if the highest grade in the class is 96%, all students will receive 4%.
- If you are absent for a test, you have one week to make it up after school (tues).
- All tests are closed notes with the exception of one 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper with hand written notes on it. The hand written notes may not be photocopied or duplicated in any way (no two students will have the same notes sheet). You may use smaller than 8.5″ x 11″. Note sheet must be turned in with test if one was used at any point during the exam.
- Understand that the test weight is significant and summative to replicate college level grading rubrics and college level responsibility.
HOMEWORK: = 20%
THIS IS A NEW CATEGORY FOR TERM 2 TO REPLACE POP QUIZZES AND NOTEBOOK CHECKS
-All homework will be distributed and submitted through showbie.
- All homework must be submitted electronically through showbie (you may write on paper and submit a picture if you choose).
- All homework is due BEFORE 7AM ON THE DAY AFTER IT IS ASSIGNED. If an assignment is given on a Friday, it is due before 7am on Monday. If an assignment is given on Tuesday, it is due before 7am on the Wednesday of the following classweek (8 days).
- If you are absent from school as documented by IPASS showing “ABSENT” for the date, you are exempt from the homework assignment, and the grade will be exempt (neither helping or hurting your current average). You are still responsible on the days you are dismissed since homework is due at 7am.
-IF FOR SOME REASON SHOWBIE IS NOT WORKING, HOMEWORK SHOULD BE EMAILED TO SLAURIA@WHITTIER.TEC.MA.US BEFORE 7AM.
- NOTE: YOU MAY BE GIVEN REVIEW MATERIAL DURING CLASS THAT IS NOT HOMEWORK, BUT RATHER REVIEW MATERIAL. YOU MAY HAVE A SHOWBIE HOMEWORK AND A REVIEW ASSIGNMENT. HOMEWORKS WILL BE LABELLED “HOMEWORK” AND WILL COMMONLY BE ABLE TO BE ANSWERED WITH OPINIONS OR REFLECTIONS RATHER THAN MATHEMATICAL EQUATIONS. ALL HOMEWORK SUBMISSIONS WILL RECEIVE A GRADE OF 100% IF THE ASSIGNMENT IS BASED ON OPINIONS OR REFLECTIONS (THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN INCORRECT OPINION OR REFLECTION).

This is a new class to Whittier Tech, and we will be drawing from several resources. Plan on bookmarking this page and the showbie page as Statistics is a resource and vocabulary heavy course. Plan on almost exclusively solving word problems and real world examples. This is not a “plug and chug” course. It will require deep inference and the use of all resources at your disposal. There will be a constant need to check back for tables, formulas, examples, and so on. I am looking forward to a great year. This course is also very vocabulary heavy, and will require daily memorization of new vocabulary and frequent pop quizzes to check for progress. This is not a course that you will be able to just “wing it”. This course will move at a very steady pace that requires new material daily. The class may also be broken into two on occasion so that two lessons are taught per day. Plan on spending time every day at home reviewing terms and practicing formulas.
