Text used and other recommended materials: 
  • Oxford IB Diploma, 2014 Edition Biology Course Companion (Allott & Mindorff)

Overall Grade for PN will be determined by the following:

                -60% Tests/Quizzes

                -35% Labs/Project

                -5% Practice (Homework, discussion, etc.)

At the end of the marking period, the teacher will calculate students’ grades from tests, daily quizzes, specific assignments, etc.  Letter grades will be assigned by the scale below.  

Student scores that result in .05 or higher should be rounded up. The following percentage scale applies.
 
100 - 91.5  = A
91.4 - 89.5 = A-
89.4 - 87.5 = B+
87.4 - 81.5 = B
81.4 - 79.5 = B-
79.4 - 77.5 = C+
77.4 - 71.5 = C 
71.4 - 69.5 = C-
69.4 - 67.5 = D+
67.4 - 61.5 = D
61.4 - 59.5 = D-
59.4 - 0      = E
 
Grades will be rounded up only to the tenth place during this calculation.  Students will only earn a passing grade for a marking period if they achieve at or above 59.45%, which rounds to 59.5%.
