  • Evidence of transfer


Our hope what is grading important

  • Young people are given a sense of achievement and capable of being successful

This we believe about grading practices

This We Believe About Grading Practices

  • Principle #1: Anything that distorts the ability of the grade to accurately communicate student achievement should be excluded from the grade calculation.

  • Example: Zeros, Late work, dishonesty, comparisons to others, extra credit, and behavior.

  • Principle #2: Academics and Learning Behaviors should be separate in grade calculation.

  • Principle #3: A grade is best communicated by individual standard.

  • Principle #4: Grades should reflect:

  • Current level of achievement reality rather than average of performance over time.

  • “Collection” of best evidence regarding student’s achievement of standard.

  • Example: Alternative assessments, professional judgment, retaking assessments.
