Standards Based Grading Policy
Preparation and production refers to evaluation of items that, although essential to learning, are not specifically part of the curriculum for a particular subject area. Examples include, but are not limited to, effort, participation, ungraded homework and / or practice assignments assessed for completion.Formative assignments refer to items that are designed to determine whether students are learning what is being taught. Formative assessments guide instructional decisions by revealing to what extent students are learning. (Process)Summative assignments are items that reflect student mastery of a standards based curriculum. They should be given after students have had formative opportunities that include detailed feedback related to achievement.
Grade percentage breakdown:Practice and Preparation - n/aFormative: - minimum 25% (pencil scale, shading, color wheel, color swatches,) Midterm examSummative: - minimum 75% (Main Assignments)
Note: The percentage breakdown for Formative & the Summative grades will never go bellow these percentages, but they could change when appropriate.
Each assignment will be worth a specified number of points. The semester grade will be determined by the student's percentage of points available. 100% - 90% = A 89% - 80% = B 79% - 70% = C 69% - 60% = D 59% - 0% = F
