Standards Based Grading in High Schools

Standards Based Grading in High Schools

While efforts to implement standards-based report cards in high school has been slow to take effect (largely due to uncertainty about how to convert these grades to GPA and reluctance to adopt a nontraditional system)...many elementary and middle schools across the country have moved to standards-based grading and report cards, which break down academic subjects into content areas and reflect a child’s progress in each of them, often on a 1-to-4 scale. Work habits and behavior are usually graded separately. Advocates of the system argue that the traditional A-F letter grades are less informative about a student's performance and subject mastery.
