Time on Khan Academy

Homework on Khan Academy

Written Work and Projects

Level Up Grade

-Calculated once per 5 week grading period

-Based on average of 40 minutes per clas day (actual work time) + 25 minutes per week of KA homework = 100% A+

Extra time on KA outside of class will give you extra credit and make up for absences.

•Spend at least 25 minutes of time outside of school hours (3 pm - 8 am) on Khan Academy, watching videos and/or practicing skills every week. (5 minutes a day on school days works best for many people)

Please note -
1) Because of limitations to the system, I cannot give you homework credit for work done during school hours, such as during nutrition, lunch, or during other classes.
2) Mastery Challenges may only be done in class.

Minutes counter for Fall 2014

-Notebook check

-Weekly Games Scores Report

-Work samples

-Discussion questions

-Others as assigned

Each written assignment is worth 10 points.

Forgetting to bubble your student ID number correctly will cost you 3 points per assignment.

Excused absences will exempt you from written assignments that cannot be made up in class.

A count of every time you move a skill up a level -

  • Needs Practice to Practiced
  • Practiced to Level 1
  • Level 1 to Level 2
  • Level 2 to Mastered

Each "Level Up" is worth 2 points. Do Mastery Challenges to move skills from Practiced to Level 1 and above.

50 level ups or more = 100% = A+
45 level ups = 90% = A-
40 level ups = 80% = B-
35 level ups = 70% = C-
30 level ups = 60% = D-
