Cogitationes Grading Procedures
The main project assigned in Latin classes is Cogitationes, which are reflections and corrections completed after each unit test. All specific instructions for Cogitationes are found in section V on pages 10-12 of the purple checklist packet.
The first draft of Cogitationes is ready to be turned in when it has three elements:
Consistent with the school policy on late projects, any late or incomplete first drafts of Cogitationes will be accepted, but assessed with a reduction of 10 percentage points per day from the final grade.
The first draft of Cogitationes receives a place-holder grade of 25% if any mistakes remain. Students may revise Cogitationes until they have corrected all mistakes and earned the designation Expert on their cover sheets, or until the final due date for revisions is reached. There is no limit to the number of revisions students may make, but each round of revisions reduces the final Cogitationes grade by 5%. The initial test score does not change throughout this process.
If a student does not receive the Expert designation by the final due date, then the 25% place-holder grade becomes the final Cogitationes grade.
