In Jacob Patterson's KBPS Radio class, Zeros in Synergy (ParentVue/StudentVue) are place-holders for assignments not submitted correctly or not submitted yet. Students should re-submit assignments until full points are earned. I am very diligent about entering points by the next school day once assignments are submitted. If you see Zeros in your student's Synergy, please offer encouragement at home to complete the work in Canvas. Once students turn in the assignment correctly they will be given full credit.

Grading - Assignments and classwork makes up 70% of total grade. Tests make up 30% of total grade. All tests are open notes and open book. Students may retake a test as many times as they would like, only the highest score is kept on the grade book. Extra credit is possible for things like recording yourself listening to live PIL sportcasting on our station AM 1450 KBPS, and for taking extra notes during lectures on test material.
