AP US History Grading Policy
AP US History students will be graded on a point system:
- Tests will count for 50-100 points
- Papers will range from 20-50 points, except in the 4th quarter, where a research paper will count for 100 points.
- Reading Quizzes will count for 3-10 points per quiz.
The sum of the points earned, divided by all possible points, will yield the final grade. Generally, there are about 300-350 points available per quarter.
NOTE: The US History and Gov't Regents Exam will count as a test in the fourth quarter. The AP Exam grade is not weighted on the average.
Global II Grading Policy
The Global History and Geography Regents Exam will count for a Fifth Quarter Grade. Please consult the student handbook for the breakdown of quarter values.
- Quizzes and Tests will be weighted as 80% of the grade.
- Homework will be given weekly, and will be scored on a scale of 1-10, or for longer assignments, 1-20. Homework will count for 20% of the grade.
A research paper will be assigned and due in the second quarter. It will count as 2/3 of a test. A second research project will be assigned in the fourth quarter, and will count strongly towards the homework average.
