All of our science courses are graded courses. The exams will be 50% of the total course grade. Quizzes are the other 50%. Exams and quizzes are computer-scored so that the student gets immediate feedback and we can seat more students than we otherwise could.

Labs are set to extra credit to work well with all the varied ways that families do their labs such as lab intensives or doing labs with a local homeschool group. These are hand-scored. The instructor grades near the weekend when the live online classes are not meeting. Our science courses total several thousand students, so allow up to two weekends for grading just in case it is a particularly heavy grading load on a particular weekend.
