  • Grading Policy


    Grading in High School Orchestra for all four quarters for this year is determined as follows:

    Two playing exams worth 20 points each, two lessons worth 5 points each and Google Classroom assignments worth 10 points to be awarded at the end of each quarter. 20 points will be awarded for class preformance. This grade is in flux and depends upon the in- class prepardedness of each student to contribute musically to daily rehearsals. The remaining 20 point participation grade includes such things as willingness to contribute to class discussions, being prepared with an instrument and music for orchestra rehearsals,, attitude and behavior, attentiveness and punctuality/attendance. The participation grade may fluctuate as well over the quarter dependent on the student's compliance with the aspects of participation.

    Playing exams (20 points each) are based on a rubric that assesses for 5 points each: intonation, rhythm, tempo, expression/tone.
