What is Standards Based Grading?
  • In a standards-based system, teachers report
    what students know and are able to do relative to
    the KY Academic Standards. The system includes
  • The improvement of student achievement of
    required Kentucky targets in all content areas,
  • The mastery of defined learning targets instead
    of the accumulation of points,
  • Evidence is based on various forms of

How Does Standards Based Grading Work?
  • Traditional grading averages a student's
    achievement data with other characteristics, such
    as work habits.
  • Standards-based grading focuses solely on a
    students academic achievement and continued
    mounting evidence that indicates a true
    assessment of the childs present attainment of
    the learning targets. Other characteristics are
    reported separately

How is Standards Based Grading Different?
  • The students grade more accurately represents
    the progress toward mastery of standards than
    traditional grading does. Subject areas are
    subdivided into big ideas related to standards
    and their respective learning targets that
    students need to learn or master. Each target is
    assessed. Scores from activities that are
    provided solely for practice will not be included
    in the final assessment of the learning target.
    The influence of positive and consistent work
    habits on student learning is reported separately
    from the academics.
