Grading Policy
Grades are determined on a two part system.

Part 1 - Assignments

The mean average of all tests, drawings, and assignments is calculated at the end of each marking period and counts for 50% of the quarterly grade.

All assignments are worth 100 points.

Assignments that are not turned in will receive a zero grade.

Assignments must be turned in on time. Five points will be deducted for each day an assignment is turned in late

Part 2 - Participation

Students receive two points for each day they are present and working in class.

Students receive zero points for each day they are absent. The individual student is responsible for seeing Mr. Sedita when he/she returns from an absence to receive the necessary make-up work. Upon completing the make-up work the student will receive two points for the absence.

Students who are present but decide not to do the day's work will be docked two points for the day. This cannot be made up.

50 days (times) 2 points = 100 points

Part 1 and part 2 grades are averaged to determine the final quarterly grade.



Homework Policy
Hutch Tech and Mr. Sedita provide students with the tools and facilities required to practice and perfect their drawing skills. Since most students do not have similar equipment available to them outside of school , homework is rarely assigned.
