Grading

This year we will be rolling out standards based grading and it will encompass understanding of 7th grade standards, work completion, classwork, and assessments. The following rubric will be used when grading:

4 -- Exceeding 7th grade academic standards

(pass all advanced level homework, pass all standards assessed on the tests, and do an additional assessment at a higher level to prove understanding)

3 -- Meeting 7th grade academic standards

(pass all grade level homework and pass all standards assessed on the test)

2 -- Approaching 7th grade academic standards

1 -- Beginning to meet 7th grade academic standards

Work Completion includes daily homework assignments and activities, Assessments include topic assessments, unit projects, as well as bigger unit assessments, and Classwork includes daily work in the student companion (class notes), review games before assessments, and projects.
