Parent Grading Policy
This example has changed since I moved from just a Mastery Based Grading system to a Standards Based Grading System. However I am putting it up here for those interested in how I created "weights" for grades with the MBG system. The way our grading in our district works required me to come up with values and weights, this was one way I found I could weight things and have them still make sense. Now that I've moved to SBG the subcategories don't exist anymore. Everything is under Mastery of Unit.
Grading for Term I
Term I has 5 Units, broken down as follows:
Mastery of Units = 60 % of total grade
In order to master a unit you must:
Completing all Mastery Tests at 80 % or better
Completing all pages in the coursepack that correspond with Unit 1
Complete all flashcards that correspond with Unit 1
Complete an Exit Interview with Ms. Miller to determine final Mastery status
Mastery of 5 Units = A
Mastery of 4 Units = B
Mastery of 3 Units = C
Mastery of 2 Units = D
Mastery of 1 Unit = F
Weekly Projects = 20 % of total grade
Each weeks project will be averaged together for 20% of your grade
Your projects will be graded as follows:
Did the project you designed answer the question?
` Did you use your class time wisely?
Did you present your information in a clear, professional manner?
Did you create a unique and creative project?
Did you use appropriate resources and check your facts?
and Internet Literacy Worksheets = 10
% of total grade Reading
You will be graded on two things:
Did you complete the worksheet/reading on time?
Did you participate in class discussion?
Current Events = 10 % of your total grade
This grade will be made up of the following:
An average of your weekly Current Events Quiz
Successful completion of all of your MLQ’s
