My base line grade for students is a 95 and is based mainly on participation. Points are docked when they are unprepared for class, late, forget equipment, music, etc. I don't make a big deal about it, it is just matter of fact with no grudges. Grades of higher than 95 are reserved for students who distinguish themselves as exceptional or one that go above and beyond like helping around the band hall or participating the All-State process or solo & ensemble.
