How many assignments do you put in the gradebook every grading period?

Do you think it is better to have more or fewer?

Usually 4-5 quizzes
2-3 tests/projects
15ish HW assignments
5-6 classwork assignments

I always wind up with about the same....even when I feel like I'm giving tons, or just a little, it always winds up being close to the same total

I am required to enter no less than 10 a quarter. I am a grading fool- around 50. I think 2 grades a week is more appropriate.

You need to have enough so that one outlier grade doesn't have undue influence on the overall grade. I think 10-20 is a good range.

I'm required to put down 2 a week. My high school classes end up with between 20 and 25 and my middle school classes end up with between 30 and 35.

My district has changed our grading requirements for this year. Previously, we had a minimum of 2 grades per week. Daily work was worth 60%, tests/projects 40%. Now we are limited to a maximum of 18 grades per six weeks, and every single grade counts the same. I've no idea why.

I've always told my students that if something is important enough for us to do in class, it's important enough for them to get credit for doing it. I entered LOTS of grades. I'll figure out how to make this fit into the new system, but it irks me to have to do it.

Yes, I find it hard to have so few. We are limited to 20 total grades per quarter. So I end up averaging various grades and grouping them together:

classwork
homework
lab

then of course, the test grouping

I think 2 grades a week is enough. I have two classes in two different grades at middle school.
