- Students will explore computer coding concepts and work on animation and game design skills. They will create a website, games, and delve into generating apps for phones. The classes will be online based in Code.org. Logins will be handed out to students during class. Students will be graded on their work in the Code Studio and on a few assignments in their OneNote Notebooks.

- All student grading is done through standards based rubrics using standards from Common Core State Standardsand International Technology and Engineering Educators Association. Student projects and assessments have their own rubrics which are located on pages within student Microsoft OneNote Notebooks. Please also know that grades are weighted, assessments are worth 60% of the student’s overall grade and projects are worth 40%.
Class proficiency scales are based on a 4-1.
3= Proficient/Meets Expectations
Based on West Ada School District guidelines, the proficiency scales is translated in the following percentages to be entered into Power School.
If you see that your grade (or your student's grade) in Power School show a majority of 90s then they are proficient for that assignment. You (your student) are right where they should be based on the standards assigned to that project or assessment.
Every assignment has a corresponding rubric in your OneNote Notebook. When graded, the appropriate scales are marked, and an overall score is given.
If you have questions, please ask me and I will be happy to discuss them with you.
