Q: Why do only assessments count towards my/my child's grade?
A: As with anything in life you need to do a lot of practice before you are really good at something. The 8th grade science department has chosen not to grade the learning process so as to give students room to make mistakes and grow and learn with out it affecting their grade. We want to give students the opportunity to build their skills before they are graded on those skills in an assessment.
