    In, LAL, we use a points-based grading system in order to provide both students and parents with a more accurate depiction of performance.  Each assignment is given a specific point value--determined by the significance of the assignment and the amount of time we have spent on it. For example, homework is worth 4 points, while published writing pieces are worth 50 or more points. Each assignment is part of a particular category and all assignments in this category are added together to calculate the category total. Each category is given a weighted percent, which is then used to calculate the overall grade for each marking period.
