What is Standards-Based Grading (SBG)?
A philosophy that student grades should reflect what standards they know and calls on you to design all instruction and assessments around those standards.

Why SBG?
SBG gives students a meaningful, realistic learning experience. It is transparent and allows for growth.
 
SBG Creates:
  • Intentional instruction
  • A system where progress can be measured per standard
  • Accurate representation of knowledge
  • A reduction in the number of inaccurate and/or inflated grades
  • Dialogue between students and teacher about the standards
  • A trusting environment that does not penalize students for mistakes made while learning

  • 90% category and 10% category split (90% Power Standard Category And 10% Daily Category)

  • Minimum of one grade per week and minimum of six grades per 6-weeks
  • Minimum of three 90% grades per 6-weeks
  • 90% grades need to be entered the Monday before the 6-weeks grading period ends to allow students time to redo work during the final week of the 6-weeks grading period.
  • Redo work not done within a 6-weeks must be completed by progress report time of the next 6-weeks 
  • Assessments can be done the final week of the 6-weeks. HOWEVER, they MUST be put into the next 6-week grading period
    • Students can retake as many times as they want without penalty prior to the next progress report following a 6-weeks grading period
    • Exceptions will  be made to this timeline for students who have attempted to do assignments, but are still in the process of mastering standards after the progress report deadline.
    • Assignments names will include a verbal description of the standard
    • If students retake and score lower, they keep the higher of two grades
