Grading Classroom Performance

            Students in the elementary will be graded using a points system.  Each assignment will be given a point value and a grade will be given based on the number of points earned out of the number of points possible on the assignment.  The quarter grade will be a percentage based on the assignment.  The quarter grade will be a percentage based on the number of pointes earned out of the total number of points possible throughout the quarter.  All grades will be posted in the Infinite Campus Grade book within a reasonable amount of time after the assignment has been completed.   The following grading scale will be used to insure a systematic way of recording and interpreting grades.

 

Kindergarten                                                   First through Sixth Grade

4 =Exceeds Expectations                              A+ = 100%         A = 99-96%       A- = 95-94%        

3 = Meets Expectations                                 B+ = 93-92%      B = 91-88%       B- = 87-865        

2 = Approaching Expectations                      C+ = 85-84%      C = 83-81%       C- = 80-78%

1 = Expectations Not Met                             D+ = 77-76%       D = 75-73%       D- = 72-70%

 * = Did Not Measure                                   F = 69% and below

Music, Physical Education, Band, Computer classes will be graded using S, I and U.

Grading Scale 7-12

The percentage grading scale used will be:

A+ = 100%                 B+ = 93 – 92%            C+ = 85 – 84%            D+ = 77 – 76%

A = 99 – 96%              B = 91 – 88%              C = 83 – 81%              D = 75-73%

A- = 95 – 94%             B- = 87 – 86%             C- = 80 – 78%            D- = 72-70%

                                                                                                            F = 69% - 0

When teachers are figuring grades, they are to round to the nearest whole number using normal mathematical rounding rules and the tenths place only to round.

Beginning with the 2010-2011 school year, any student completing as AP (Advanced Placement) course whether through the South Dakota Virtual School or via Faulkton High Schools, the grade earned in said class will possess a multiplier of 1.25 for GPA calculation purposes.
