Assessment of Progress

Assignment Dates will be on Canvas

Assignments for Computer Technology are organized in modules and made available on Canvas (our online classroom management system). Students will work through each module as listed on Canvas. Students must check Canvas regularly for due dates and submission instructions. Although the student may see his or her scores in Canvas for individual assignments, the student’s official grade will be found on PowerSchool. The student is responsible for submitting work on time and keeping track of their grade on PowerSchool. It is the student’s responsibility to make up all work missed when absent for any reason. He or she is responsible to get class notes from another student, to find out what was missed, to ask for class handouts and make-up quizzes, etc.

Students are expected to take all tests on the same day as the rest of the class. Any make-up test due to unexpected absences must be completed immediately upon the student’s return and will only be allowed for EXCUSED ABSENCES. Students absent for extra-curricular activities will take the test prior to the absence. PLEASE PROPERLY EXCUSE ALL ABSENCES IMMEDIATELY!

Quizzes will be given at the beginning of the class period. Students must be in class on time to take the quiz. Tardy students may not be allowed to take the quiz.
