Purposes of Grading:
We use students’ grades to determine promotion, graduation, and athletic eligibility, to award honors, and to report to other schools and prospective employers. After high school grades inform college acceptance, scholarships and vocational plans.
We believe the purposes of grades are to:
1. Communicate achievement status of students to parents and others
2. Provide information that students can use for self-evaluation
3. Evaluate the effectiveness of instructional programs
4. Use for instructional purposes – clarify learning goals, indicate students’ strengths & weaknesses, inform about students’ personal/social development, contribute to student motivation
1. Grades represent what students know, understand, and can do
2. Grading procedures allow students to recover from initial failure, e.g. non-graded formative assessments, re-testing (the highest of the grades is counted), etc.
3. Grading procedures minimize the impact of behaviors, work habits, effort, late assignments, homework, attitude, etc.
4. Grades make mathematical sense
5. Grading is defensible and credible.
