    Second Grade students in Richmond COunty are assessed with a Standards-Based Grading System.


    What is the purpose of a standards-based grading system?

    The purpose of the new grading system is to provide parents, teachers, and students with more accurate information about students’ progress toward meeting standards. Parents will be more aware of what their children should know and be able to do by the end of each grading period. 


    How is progress measured?

    The new report card for grades K-3 will include a grading scale (1-4).  

    o    4-Distinguished Learner

    o    3-Proficient Learner

    o    2-Developing Learner

    o    1-Beginning Learner

    o    If an indicator is not measured during the grading period, the student will NOT receive a mark on the report card.


    How are standards-based report cards different from traditional report cards?

    On traditional report cards, students receive one grade for each subject. On a standards-based report card, each of the subject areas is divided into a list of skills and knowledge indicators that students are learning.
