INFORMATION ITEM

 

SUBJECT

Grading scale pilot for Mountain View Elementary School’s personalized learning classes.

RATIONALE

The personalized learning classes at MVES will use O, S, N and U to assess and report their performance in reading, math, and all other subject areas. In addition to the scale, an additional report listing all the standards that have been mastered will be added to the report card. (Please see the attached report for the 1st grade personalized learning class which is more like a standards based grading system.)

Students are trying to master skills that were previously taught and then move forward. Not every student in the class is at the same place at the same time. The goal is for these students to make satisfactory progress toward the standards with the ultimate goal to be close to or at grade level by the end of the school year.
