Assessment & Grading Expectations
Douglass School Elementary School follows the Loudoun County Public Schools Expectations Regarding Assessment and Grading.

Grading and Reporting Procedures
Grades will primarily reflect how well the student has mastered the course objectives/standards.

Summative assessments will comprise 90% of a student's grade. Summative assessments include tests, projects, simulations, portfolios and other approaches.

Given the importance of formative assessments/activities in helping students gain and/or increase their understanding (and in helping teachers identify areas needing additional instruction), students will be required to maintain a portfolio consisting of the formative assessments/activities assigned during the marking period. The portfolio for these formative activities will comprise 10% of the final grade. Mastery and understanding of content is enhanced with a review of mistakes corrected and skills gained, and a portfolio provides a structure for this purpose.

In order to demonstrate mastery/comprehension of a subject, students may retake any summative assessment they have not yet passed (with a C or better). However, before being administered a retake, the student must demonstrate an improved understanding of items he/she missed on the initial summative assessment (correcting previous test mistakes, completing /redoing formative assignments, conferencing with the teacher, etc.).

Students may retake any summative assessment on their own time approved by the teacher. Retakes may require scheduling before or after school. Arrangements for transportation for these retakes will be the sole responsibility of the students.

Summative assessments should not be limited to tests, but should include projects, simulations and other approaches (including student critique per a rubric).

Students will be given a “Z” for formative or summative assessments not completed on time. Within the allocated grading period, appropriate deadlines will be established by the teacher especially for interim/quarter grades and end of course/semester grades. Any "Z" will be counted as zero in the grade calculation.

When a formative assignment is entered into the Phoenix Grade Book, it will be linked to a standard/objective for the course (where course objectives have been added into the Phoenix Grade Book). The Phoenix Grade Book will be updated at least every two weeks.

District Announcements


There is a letter grade display discrepancy in graded assignments between the ParentVUE/StudentVUE web versions and the mobile apps (secondary only). This only occurs for certain numeric assignment grades that are on the cusp of the next higher letter grade (e.g. 43 out of 44 calculates to 97.7%). The web version displays the correct letter grade (A+), while the apps display the lower letter grade (A). Since the Grade Book uses only the calculated numeric grades from assignments for marking period grades, this grade display discrepancy has no impact on the student’s marking period or final grade in the class.
