Tests and other major grades:

A relatively short project, such as an Excel spreadsheet, may be
included each six weeks. When that happens, it will be weighted as the
equivalent of 1/2 of a test grade.
Daily Grades and quizzes:
You will be quizzed over nearly all reading assignments. Quizzes will be
given on or after the date on which the reading is due.
