Question

I am in 8th grade, and in history I always get straight A's, except one test I did horrible and it
brought my average down to a B. My history teacher weighs the assignments differently. 20%
is homework and 80% is tests and quizzes. Is that fair?

says:

Homework shouldn't be part of grades so it is fair as long as the tests are quality
assessments and opportunities to take a make-up test when you don't do well the first
time.
