Grade Scale
The Grade Scale does not follow the outdated traditional scale (100-90%=A; 89-80%=B; etc.). It is based on 4 levels and all work will be evaluated on these 4 levels. Please see the Standards Sheets for the criteria of these levels.
Because of the 4 levels, there is a possibility of a student earning a 4, 3, 2, 1 or 0 on each assignment. Therefore, the grade breakdown will be as follows:

There will be multiple ways to view your individual grade book as well as customize it with categories, etc. The above table will be how we report grades to students and parents and cannot be easily modified for each teacher.


You'll perceive that a 50% seems like an F, but if you notice the possible levels, the student has earned 2 out of 4 which means s/he has demonstrated basic understanding of the material, thus, 50% is a C. If you have questions about this scale, please contact me.
