Each student's grade will be based on their relative scores in each of the weighted categories shown below on the left.  Below and on the right is the overall percentage breakdown.


Overall Grading Percentage

· Daily Classwork & Homework        30%            

· Projects                                                   40%            

· Tests                                                          20%

A = 90% +                                                                             

B = 80% – 89%                                                                              

C = 70% – 79%

D = 60% – 69%†

F = 0% – 59%*

*Student will meet with Teacher and a phone call home. 

Daily Classwork & Homework

Daily participation is required, both to master the material presented and to gain a better understanding of Architecture & Design/Construction Management.  The minimal expectation is that the student is working on the assignment provided in class during the entire period.  Students will be graded on their efforts in-class individually, in pairs, and in groups.  Points will be earned on a weekly basis, students with an excused absence will earn the full participation points if student speaks with me (Mr. Sanchez) for make-up work.  If the student does not speak to me (Mr. Sanchez) about make-up work, points will be deducted for the week.  Students will be expected to keep notes in their Engineering/Construction Management Notebook, which will be graded at random.  Students may have homework on a given day as well.  The expectation is for the homework assignment to be turned in on the day that it is due.  No credit will be issued for late work.  Make-up work:  Students have one day to make-up homework for each day absent.  It is the student's responsibility to ask for missed assignments.  Students with scheduled absences must get their assignments in advance and turn it in on time.


This course is built on projects.  Each project is designed to help the student gain a better understanding of Architecture/Construction Management.  Most projects will be in pairs or groups, and as such a student must be able to successfully work in a collaborative effort.  All projects will have a due date and require a presentation.  A project that is not ready for presentation by the due date will receive a 50% penalty on its final score.

Student Responsibilities

  • Students are expected to attend class regularly and arrive on time.
  • Students are expected to be prepared for class each day, with materials needed to successfully participate (engineering notebook, pencil, binder, and agenda are minimum expectations).
  • Students are expected to participate in class.  This includes taking notes during the daily lesson and keeping those notes in the Engineering Notebook.
  • Write the daily homework assignment in their agenda.

If a student is assigned detention, they are to report at the scheduled time and location.  If the student fails to arrive for the scheduled detention, they may be subject to an office discipline referral.
