Transcript of Intro to Summit Grading with Audio Commentary

Summit
Intro to Grades

Standards-Based Grading
Cognitive skills
Cognitive skills include:

-Textual Analysis (close reading)
-Using Sources
-Inquiry
-Analysis & Synthesis
-Composing/Writing
-Speaking/Listening
-Products/Presentations

They are developed through
real-world projects.
Content knowledge
Content knowledge: specific pieces of information students learn in different subject areas - such as the parts of a cell or different types of conflict in a story.

You will learn this specific content through
Focus Areas
.
GRADING FOR ALL CORE SUBJECTS,
(EXCEPT MATH)
70%
of a course's grade is based on a student’s cognitive skills in projects.

30%
of a student's grade is based on passing Focus Areas
**Power Focus Areas are worth
21%
**
Additional Focus Areas are worth
9%
Grading on Projects/Concept Units
1. Students receive grades for their demonstration of multiple cognitive skills in each project.

2. Students must complete every project to pass a class.

3. If a student does not complete a project on time or his/her cognitive skill average for a course is below 70%, then the student will have an Incomplete grade. He/she can change the Incomplete into a letter grade by completing any overdue projects and improving in his/her cognitive skill scores.

Grading on Focus Areas
1. Students pass a Focus Area by passing Content Assessments (tests).

2. Projects have both Power and Additional Focus Areas associated with it.

3. Students must pass all Power Focus Areas to pass a course
Additional Focus Areas are not required, but they count toward a student’s grade.

4. If a student is not pacing to pass all of their Power Focus Areas by the end of the year, then the student will have an Incomplete grade for the course. He/she can change the Incomplete into a letter grade by passing enough Focus Areas to be at or ahead of the pacing line.

What we expect:
We expect our students to submit 100% of their projects, achieve grade level performance on his/her cognitive skills, and pass 100% of their Power Focus Areas to be prepared for success in college. If a student does not accomplish these three goals, then they will have an Incomplete.
Ahead-of-track
: Students who are consistently producing work above grade-level on the cognitive skills rubric in projects and are pacing ahead in focus areas

On-track
: Students who are producing work at grade-level on the cognitive skills rubric in projects and are pacing where they need to be in focus areas

Off-track
: Students who are producing work below grade-level on the cognitive skills rubric in projects and are pacing behind schedule in focus areas
What will students be graded on?
To prepare students for career and college, Summit focuses on developing cognitive skills & knowledge in Project Time and Personalized Learning Time (PLT).
Grading for Math
30%
of a course's grade is based on a student’s cognitive skills in projects.

40%
of the math course's grade is based on concept units, which are completed during project time.

30%
of a student's grade is based on passing Focus Areas
**Power Focus Areas are worth
21%
**
Additional Focus Areas are worth
9%
Cognitive Skill Rubric
Students will have a score between 1-8 on their cognitive skills were 8 is pre-professional. The score is translated to a percentage grade based on their grade level. See the table below to see what cognitive skill score matches to a 70%, 85%, and 100% grade at different grade levels.
What can you do to help?
-Talk with your child about what he/she is working on in class.

-Log-in to the Summit parent portal to get detailed information on your child's goals and progress.
