Welcom to Mrs. B's Advanced English I

  • Students earn formative grades as they form knowledge.  Summative assignments are used to assess knowledge that has been learned after formative work has been completed.  As skills advance, students are tested on previous skills and new skills. 

    Formative= 40% of the final grade

    Summative = 60% of the final grade

    Summative Assessments at the end of the 9 weeks can change the overall grade.  Please be consistent until the end of each 9-week period.
