midterm question? - January 5th 2010, 04:54 AM

I'm a freshman in highschool and I was wondering...do midterms count on the 2nd grading period grade, or just the final grade of the class? Watch as soon as I post this, I'll get the answer at school lol. But I'm trying to raise my grade quickly before the quarter's over and just wanted to know if midterms were counted for that. Maybe it's different at every school? I'm not sure.

Thanks for the help!

I'm not sure what you're asking. This depends on how your school does things. Are you on a quarter system? Or do you have quarters and semesters?

Depends where do you live?
Because I think that in the USA at least were I went to high school in the midterm was for the quarter in which you took it and then the teachers would add up all the quater grades plus a final and that was your final grade for the class.

^That's one way that it can be done, but there are other systems. My school uses quarters and semesters, but a "term" is the semester. Therefore, our Midterms are taken at the end of quarters 1 and 2. After the quarter, you are allowed to build on your grade for the remainder of the semester. At the end of each semester, you take a final. At the end of the semester, your grades are wiped clean and you start over.

I'm not sure if this is how it's normally done, as we're a public charter and work things a little differently.

at my school midterms/finals/regents count as 20% of your QUARTER average in whichever class the exam was in.

for example if you got an 85 on a biology midterm, the 85 would count as 20% of your 2nd quarter grade. then in june when we end school, we would take (in this case) a regents, which whatever grade you earned on that would count as 20% of the 4th quarters final average.

In most schools midterms do NOT count on the 2nd grading period. They usually are added to your final exam score which then impacts your final, overall grade in the class at the end of the year.
This is NOT always true; however, it usually is true.
To be safe I would suggest asking each of your teachers because it may differ from teacher to teacher.

It depends what a "grading period" is for your school.
