Percent of Grade Increase on Homeschool Homework

Post by Sonshine » October 11th, 2018, 9:11 pm

Hi, I believe I saw this, but don't remember where. It seems like the percent that the grade increases w/homeschool homework is slower than that of the reg school. I thought I saw a place to adjust this. Could somebody help please? Thanks!

Percent of Grade Increase on Homeschool Homework

In my experience, the two do not correlate with each other. Regular school homework must be completed before the student can begin building school performance points at the maximum rate during the next school day. If the homework is incomplete, they can "Finish Late Homework" while at school, but do not earn any scholastic performance while doing so. They can also do regular school activities with incomplete homework, but if it is unfinished below a certain threshold (60 or 70%?), they won't gain any scholastic performance for that either. They don't get any scholastic performance increase just for having done the homework -- in other words, if they goof off at school all the next day then they will have a net gain of 0 and are at risk to be held over for detention for messing around too much.

Homeschool homework is the only thing that dictates a homeschooled students scholastic performance, not counting special opportunities if any become available. Turn it in on time and you get some scholastic performance points (towards higher grades). Fail to do so and you lose some instead.

But the amount granted or subtracted is indeed adjustable. On City Hall, NRaas > Careers > General > Performance for Homework > (Default is 20, which means from the usual starting point of 0 it would take five on time assignments 100% completed to reach the max scholastic performance score of 100, which is an A in terms of grades.)

I have that dialed back myself to 10 or something like that because I play longer age ranges.
