    Room 4 Grading Scale

     

    Dear Parents,

    It is my opinion that many student assignments do not fit smoothly into a numeric grading scale.  This is particularly true of written compositions and Social Studies projects.

    Since I must convert all grades to numbers for the report cards, I thought it would be helpful to provide you with the scale I will be using.

    I will use the scale below to assign point values to student letter grades.  In most cases I will use the mid point of each value range.  For example a 'B' grade is worth between 87 and 89 points.  I will typically award 88 points, the mid way between 87 and 89.

    I may award the 89 if there is cause to raise the grade or 87 if there is some reason to do that.
