GRADING (Reporting) Philosophy / Policy: Under a competency-based system of student assessment, traditional grades are replaced by reports of student progress in demonstrating proficiency in meeting Learning Goals for Duty Areas of units and Learning Targets (competencies). Because student progress will be measured cumulatively, formal grades will only be reported at the end of a semester. Student progress will be reported as:
4 = Exemplary / exceeds standard
3 = Proficient / meets standard
2 = Developing / approaching standard
1 = Beginning / well below standard
0 = Insufficient work shown
A variety of assessment strategies including projects, lab demonstrations, oral reports, essays, student portfolios, student/teacher conferences, as well as traditional tests, quizzes and homework may be used to determine student progress.
Student behavior may be reported if necessary, but will not factor into the assessment of student performance.
Traditional Grade/Competency Conversion:
