Why use Standards Referenced Grading?

  • It is our goal for students to master standards from grade to grade and report to parents the progress of how a student is growing and learning over the course of the year.

  • Reports individual academic progress of students to all stakeholders

    • Detailed in proficiency scales

    • Reported using 1-4 scale

  • Reflects students’ demonstration of an understanding of critical skills (ALSDE Course of Study)

  • Explicitly states how students must demonstrate their understanding

  • Communicates non-academic factors separately (Habits of Success)
