Standards-Based Scoring

The purpose of grades is to provide an accurate a picture of student learning and ability. Because of this purpose, the only things contributing to the final grade will be assessments that show student achievement/mastery of the learning targets or standards.

By adding homework scores as well as participation, attendance, punctuality, etc. into the final grade, the ability to communicate about a student’s ability and learning would be crippled. These assignments will be included in Skyward, but will not contribute to the final grade. In addition, extra credit is not offered.

Grades will be assigned according to the number of standards that a student has shown proficiency in.  90-100% = A, 80-89%=B, 70-79%=C
