About Second Semester Grades For AP Classes 2023

A reminder that as per the Course Information packet from August 2022, final grades are not adjusted up or down to the next higher grade. As the course info packet states:

No grade adjustments are made for students who are “close” to a particular grade. So an 89.99% grade is a B+ grade, and will not be “rounded up” to an A- grade. Grades reflect mastery of course content, not the effort expended by the student during the final few weeks of class. Plan ahead, track your grade closely, and work in advance to earn the grade you desire.

Beyond this statement, I have scaled every quiz this year, I have scaled the semester final, I have scaled key assignments, and I have provided an extra credit project each semester to assist students in reaching the next higher grade. In short, I have done my part to assist every student in “moving up” to the next higher grade.

Thank you for all of your hard work in this class, and I hope you all have a great summer 🙂
