Course grading criteria shift

Course Grading Criteria Shift:

All quizzes, tests, and projects will be graded according to the Belle Vernon Area School District grading policy. Total points will be accumulated for all evaluated efforts in this class rather than having letter grades per each effort. The grading scale is as follows:

A-90-100

B-80-89

C-70-79

D-60-69

F-0-59

Emphasis will be on formal assessments. Therefore grades will be weighted.

Formal Assessments will account for 90% of a student’s grade (quizzes, tests, projects, performance-based rubrics, essays, graded homework, etc.)

Informal Assessments will account for 10% of a student’s grade (homework for completion, class participation, exit tickets, etc.)

Formal Assessment

Formal assessments are systematic, preplanned methods of testing students that are used to determine how well students have learned the material that is being taught in the classroom. In other words, formal assessments provide a way of answering the question, “What do the students know?”

Each formal assessment has the same set of expectations for all of the students who are taking the assessment. Each formal assessment also has specific criteria used for scoring and interpretation.

The main purpose of formal assessment is to measure the amount of knowledge that students have retained from what they have been previously taught.
