  • Grading and Classwork

    Posted by Shawn Niolon White on 2/1/2018

    Many students have been struggling with completing their independent assignments during class as I work with students individually.  I do have zero block on Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. for any student with a grade below a 65 on a minor assignment to come in to make up that work unless otherwise specified.  They can also complete the work by logging into Canvas at home and completing any assignments and turning them in.  This should be done within a two week period so that the work is relevant to their tests. 

    We are building on skills now and students should work hard on completing their work as soon as possible.  

    Students have a printed copy of the instructions on how to save, how to submit and how how to download their work.  

    Students should study digital terms and practice keyboarding daily even if there is no other homework assigned.  They can also watch any of the instructional videos that I post on Canvas.  This is not meant to be a replacement for in class instruction but as a supplement to class instruction and as a review of what we have gone over in class.

    Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns at snwhite@madison-schools.com

  • Grades

    Posted by Shawn Niolon White on 1/19/2018

    January has gotten off to a slow start.  Many students have not been completed and submitted their assignments.  They can still turn them in for a grade. 

    Any student that has an NG or a grade of 64 or below 65 on a minor assignment can redo the assignment for a better grade except for quizzes within 2 weeks of the day it was assigned. I will extend that date for assignments given January 3-8th due to the school closures January 16th & 17th.  Students are already given 2 chances on an Open Note quiz.  

    I am in the process of grading as much as possible as quickly as possible! However, I cannot grade graphics assignments from home because they can appear different on my MacBook than they do on the PC and I don't want to give anyone an incorrect grade. 

    My zero block is on Tuesday morning from 7:30 to 8:15.  Students must be in my room before 8:00 a.m.. to come to zero block. 

    If you have any questions, please let me know! My email is snwhite@madison-schools.com or you can call the school and leave a message.  (601) 859-0376.
