• Grading
     
    Choir grades adhere to the tradition grading scale using letter grades as follows:
     
    90 - 100% = A
    80 - 89% = B
    70 - 79% = C
    60 - 69% = D
    0 - 59% = F

    Student grades will be determined by daily attendance, behavior, participation, preparedness (having needed materials), classwork/homework, test/quizzes, and concert attendance.  The breakdown for grading is as follows:

     

    ¡  Rehearsal Skills

     

    §  (100 points, approximately 10 points per week)

     

    §  40% of total grade

     

    ¡  Classwork

     

    §  (50 points, approximately 5-10 points per assignment)
