Assessment and Grades

  • Assessment/Grades-

     

    Rather than traditional letter grades, your child will receive two kinds of grades. The Academic Performance Level shows how your child compares to the New York State learning standards in each subject. The grades, which correspond to those on our report card, are shown below:

     

    Academic Performance Level: 4 -consistently exceeds NYS learning standards (above grade level) 3 -consistently meets NYS learning standards (at grade level) 2- occasionally meets NYS learning standards (usually below grade level) 1 - Rarely meets NYS learning standards (significantly below grade level)

    Expectations: Students will also receive a grade that indicates whether they are performing above, at or below expectations. These grades also correspond to those on our report card and are:

    E = Exceeds expectations; M = Meets expectations; B = Below expectations
