    i have always made everything equal in weight.

    i have to have at least six grades per nine weeks:

    2-project grades
    5-test grades

    i'm very strict on my parents about studying. i don't hesitate to call them at work! i'll call a conference & teach them how to study with their kids.

    by open house, most of my parents get the idea that they have to study with their kids to pass science and ss.

    but, i teach 4th. we have our high-state testing, so most parents want my advise and guidance! those who don't get it anyway! i'd rather be a hard-*** than have kids fail because of busy or lazy parents.

    maybe tests could be worth 50% of the final grade. that way homewrok could be 15% or 25% and labs/projects could be 35% or 25%.

    this way it would lower those too high averages.

    good luck!
