The grading symbols reflect those used on the Loudoun County report card. This four-point scale is built around a learning target identified as Level 3 which are grade level objectives.
a) A child who receives a score of “3” on an assessment has demonstrated the understanding or skill necessary to “Meet the Standard.” The goal is for all children to demonstrate proficiency which is described as the level “3” learning target (grade level expectation. This can be a 100% accuracy and still be a 3 or meets the standard).
b) A child who receives a score of “2” on an assessment is working with simpler concepts that show the student is “Progressing toward the Standard.”
c) A child who is working with the building blocks that will eventually lead to success at level “2” or higher would receive a “1” or “Below the Standard” on that particular assessment.
d) In order to receive a score of “4” on an assessment, a child must meet the level 3 learning target and also demonstrate application of more complex concepts related to level “3” objective. A child who “Exceeds the Standard” produces work that shows in-depth understanding of the grade level concepts.
The grading symbols used in Loudoun County are as follows:4= Exceeds the grade level standards.3= Meets the grade level standards2= Progressing to meet the grade level standards1= Below the grade level standardsE= Exceeds the grade level standards.M= Meets the grade level standardsP= Progressing to meet the grade level standardsB= Below the grade level standardsThese grade will appear on your child's papers during the school year. Please remember that grades are recorded in the grade book only when students have been provided appropriate time to practice a skill. When students are learning and practicing a skill, no formal assessments will be given.
