Responsibility Grade


Found in: grading; motivating students

 

Many of the same students were forgetting their materials for class so I implemented a responsibility grade. Each student starts with 100 points at the beginning of the six weeks. They loose 3 points each time they forget their materials, need to return to their locker, or have to borrow a writing utensil. It's easy to keep track of it in my grade book. I just put a tally mark by the student's name every time 3 points are lost. The grade is figured out at the end of the six weeks and then everybody starts out fresh again. This grade rewards the students that always remember everything for class and encourages the students that continuously forget materials to become more responsible and accountable in class.
