Standards Based Grading involves measuring a child's proficiency on the standard (concept) being taught. In other words, their grade will reflect what they know about what is being taught. Grades come from our assessments. Assessments can be short quizzes, longer tests, projects, or lab reports.
The SBG scale:
After Teaching my standard...
1 - the student still needs help.
2 - the student has a basic understanding but needs more practice.
3 - the student knows enough to pass the test (at grade level).
4 - the student understands and can teach it to someone else (above grade level).
For report card purposes, the SBG numbers are converted to a percentage:
1 - 63
2 - 75
3 - 88
4 - 100
