Homework grades can be taken in the form of an accuracy check or completion check. Accuracy check selects five random homework problems that are then graded based on correctness of the problem. Completion checks look at the amount of homework that is completed. If the student completes all of his/her homework they receive a 100, more than half but not fully complete receive a grade of 50, less than half of the homework completed would result in a 0. Homework is checked for completion or accuracy daily. It is important for students to complete every assignment fully and correctly to earn the max points.
