    I would like to know how many grades per subject you record in a nine week period to come up with your report card grade.

    What do you grade?

    And what grade do you teach?

    i.e. 4th grade Math / 19 grades--9 tests /4 quiz /4 classwork/ 1 HW)

    We have 6 week grading periods which at times makes it very difficult to grade. I grade homework at times, as well and quizzes, chapter tests, and use rubrics in writing and social studies.
    I normally have:
    12-20 grades in Math and Reading
    At least 6 in Science and Social Studies
    1-2 published pieces in Writing as well as conference notes

    It varies by subject.
    Math: about 45-60 grades
    Reading: about 30-40 grades
    Language Arts: About 15-20 grades
    Social Studies: About 15-20 grades
    Science: About 20-30 grades

    That is per 9 weeks for 5th grade. That is for both homework and tests.
