Evaluation Grids

the-minions1

The following grids may be useful for you to understand the grading of written work or oral testing during the school year. If you have any questions please feel free to post a comment, I will be more than happy to provide an answer, or ask in class.

Remember, evaluation is, most of all, useful for you. It is designed so that you can pin-point weak points in your work that need improving and the strong ones that should be maintained. But, above all, remember marks are not meant to be identified with you or your personality, but help you learn how to do better, if necessary.
