I was wondering if anyone gives participation grades for classroom or homework? On some of the courses that involve questions with the lessons, I was thinking it would be like having a text book and worksheet. Worksheets would be graded, so it made me think maybe online work (for regular lessons) should be graded as well. My child spends a good amount of times on these lessons, so I thought to help balance out test and quiz grades, maybe a participation grade would be beneficial. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help.
Re: Participation Grades
Yes, I have! I've allowed extra points for participating in discussions or outside projects. I keep my own grade book for this.
