Grading System

Revised 2/13/12

Woodstock Job Corps CMA

Students at the Woodstock JCC receive grades based on classroom participation, projects,
laboratory performance, and written examinations. Final grades are issued at the end of
each grading period based on the following criteria:
A 90-100 = 4 Quality Points
B 80-89 = 3 Quality Points
C 70-79 = 2 Quality Points

D 60-69
= 1 Quality Point
F 59 & below = 0 Quality Point

Students must earn a minimum grade of C in each subject area for each grading period
(module) prior to graduating or entering their externship (if required).
For an explanation of Quality Points and determining academic progress, please see
the Attendance and Academic Policies in the school catalog.
Teaching Strategies
A variety of teaching strategies may be utilized in this course including but not limited to:
lecture, discussion, classroom exercises, oral presentations, written assignments,
demonstrations and examinations.
Attendance
Absence, tardiness and early departure are not permitted. They will be recorded and
become a part of the students permanent record. Minimum attendance for all programs is
80% in each grading period or module. For a complete description of the attendance
policy, please refer to the Student Handbook.
Examinations
All examinations will be held under the direction of an instructor or other administrative
staff member.
Students are expected to be prepared on the day of the examination. Students are also
expected to be on time and present in their seats prior to the administration of the
examination, test, drill, or quiz.
Students late for class on a test day will not be allowed to enter the classroom once the
testing period has begun and must make arrangements to take the exam at a later time.
Maximum score for the student may be limited to 70%.
Students are not allowed to leave the classroom after beginning the examination without
first asking their instructors permission and handing in their test and answer sheet to the
instructor. Only one student at a time may leave the classroom and must return within
five minutes or less during an examination, test, drill, etc., or it will be considered invalid
and the student will receive a 0 for their grade.
Students may use calculators if their instructor allows. This is an independent decision
made by the instructor.

Tape recorders may never be used during any type of testing situations.
Students may communicate only with the instructor.
Cell phones are never to be turned on or visible during an exam.
Students may not use or attempt to use unfair means to gain advantage on the
examination. See the Academic Dishonesty section of this Handbook.
Test Make-up Policy
If a student is not present on the day of any quiz, written, or practical examination, the
student must be prepared to make-up the missed examination the day they return to
school.
The highest grade a student may achieve for make-up work will be 70. The ONLY
exceptions to this are instances where the student has jury duty, the student or an
immediate family member (child, spouse, or parent) has been under the emergency care
of a physician or hospitalized, or there has been a death in the students immediate
family.
If a student provides verifiable documentation for his/her absence as detailed above (i.e.
doctors note, hospital records), the instructor may allow the make-up work to be
completed at a later date, but never longer than (5) five class days after return to school.
Students who have an absence as noted above, and take a make-up exam within the
allowable time frame, will be given full credit for the exam.
In all cases of make-up work, should the student fail to take the exam, drill, quiz, or test
on the scheduled make-up date, the student will receive a 0.
In the program, failure to achieve a minimum score of 70% on each section of that
module will require that the student repeat the failed component.
If a cumulative final exam is given in a module, a minimum score of 70% must be
achieved on that test.
Student Evaluation of the Course & Instructor
At the end of each module you will be asked to complete an evaluation of the course and
your instructor. This evaluation is among the many evaluation tools used by the school to
monitor its performance and provides valuable feedback that becomes the basis for future
improvements in the program and the curriculum. Your honest assessment and
constructive criticism is extremely helpful.
