Grading and Skyward Information
for Parents and Guardians
We have had a GREAT start to the year with our kids and want to thank you for that! We would also like to remind you of a few things related to grading and Skyward.
You have probably already noticed a change in how your student's grades look in Skyward. Each teacher is using Minnesota Academic Standards for the content taught in their class and is grading student's achievement of standards based on the following proficiency scale.
2=Partially Meets Standards
1=Does Not Meet Standards
We are not using any percentages as related to an "A, B,C, D, F" scale. There is no comparison in the new scale of "4, 3, 2, 1, 0" to the old "A-F" scale.
Our goal is to have grades that accurately reflect a student's achievement!
If your child has a 3(M) or a 4 (E) on practice, formatives and summatives...then they are doing a great job and are right where they need to be! If you click on the letter for each class, it will open up and show the assignments done in that class along with the grades for those assignments. Please click on the "bubble icon" by your child's assignments to view any comments from that teacher.
If you have any questions, please contact the teachers on your child's team!
