    Students will be assessed at selected points during the study of a unit or skill area. Students will be given frequent opportunities for evaluation through classwork, projects, participation, and other methods. Grades are calculated according to the Denton ISD Middle School Grade Calculations policy and are designed to report the students current skill level on the general education curriculum.
