Standards Based GradingPlease remember we are using Standards Based Grading.
Here is a Parent Brochure Link on what it means!
Essentially there are 4 levels and these are for end of grade standards:
So, by the end of 3rd grade you child should be demonstrating mastery of our curriculum concepts. (Level 3 or 4)
There may be standards for which your child receives a 2 – Progressing toward Grade-Level Standard - during the first couple of quarters. Because it is the beginning of the year, this means that
your child is making progress toward the end of the year standard, so there is no need for concern. Our goal is that every child receive a mark of 3 – Meets Grade-Level Standard - by the end of the year
for each of the standards listed. This score indicates that your child is on target for his or her grade level and should be celebrated.
1=Limited Progress Towards Grade Level Standard
2=Progressing Toward Grade Level Standard
3=Meets Grade Level Standard
4=Exceeds Grade Level Standard
BLANK BOX=Not Assessed at this time
We also have letter grades of C,S,N for Work Habits, Behavior, and Character.
The work habits and character development standards will use a scale of C, S, and N:
C = Consistently
S = Sometimes
N = Not yet
Consistently means that students engage in this behavior regularly with minimal reminders.
Sometimes means the students engage in that behavior sometimes and they may need multiple reminders or assistance with that skill.
Not Yet means they need frequent reminders.
