Course Grades

Achievement Grade
Achievement grades, based on summative assessments, require you to demonstrate your understanding of the learning goals. A summative assessment occurs after you have had the opportunity to practice, receive explicit feedback, and correct errors in learning or thinking.

Formative assessments are practice opportunities that allow you to refine your understanding of new knowledge and skills without penalty.  They occur during the learning process, provide you with specific feedback to inform your learning and provide teachers with feedback to improve instruction. Formative assessments will not count toward the achievement grade.

Life Skill Grade

Life skills will be recorded weekly.
