These assessments are aligned to course standards and are used to monitor student progress. For students in grades 6 and 7, the score on the quarterly assessment counts as 5% of the quarter grade and for students in grade 8, the score on the quarterly assessment counts as 10% of the quarter grade. All assignments shall have a due date. Assignments submitted after the due date shall be penalized on a sliding scale basis, as described in the syllabus or course outline, and determined by the course content team in advance.
