Grading and Reporting

Grading Rubric

Teachers in grades 2-5 use a four-point, standards-based rubric (or scoring tool) when assessing performance on a given benchmark in reading, math, science, writing and health. The rubric describes the criteria for scoring and is shown below.

To read this rubric, begin at the bottom. A score of zero assumes no learning. As learning progresses from the simplest concepts at the bottom of the rubric and to more complex concepts at the top of the rubric scale, the student's score will increase. Notice that a 3.0 score represents what we expect children to know from what was explicitly taught. A score above 3.0 reflects learning which exceeds expectations; using inferences and applications that go beyond what was explicitly taught.

Rubric Score
Rubric Description
4.0

In addition to Score 3.0, uses inferences and applications that go beyond what was explicitly taught in class.

3.5

In addition to Score 3.0 performance, partial success at inferences and applications that go beyond what was directly explicitly in class.

3.0

No major errors or omissions regarding any of the information and/or processes (simple or complex) that were explicitly taught.

2.5

No major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and process and partial knowledge of the more complex ideas and processes.

2.0

No major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes but major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes.

1.5

Partial knowledge of the simpler details and processes but major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and procedures.

1.0

With help, a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes and some of the more complex ideas and processes.

0.5

With help, a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes but not the more complex ideas and processes.

0.0

Even with help, no understanding or skill demonstrated.
