• Grading & Reporting 
      
     
       We wanted to take this opportunity to share with you the grading and reporting procedures for your fourth grade student this year.  At the bottom you will find links to the academic standards via the Georgia Dept. of Education site.  The learning expectations and standards for your child’s performance have been outlined for each quarter.  Teachers will be using traditional numeric grades on all Summative Assessments and in the content areas of Science and Social Studies.   Assignments that are being used to monitor student progress toward mastery of standards are considered formative and will receive a standards based score of 4, 3, 2, or 1.  
     
         Students who consistently demonstrate mastery of standards through regular classroom instruction and assessment will receive a score of “3” (meets standard). Students who consistently demonstrate mastery and independently demonstrate the ability to exceed the standard may receive a score of 4 in a given area. Students who exceed the standard initiate conversations and produce work that demonstrates deeper and more complex understanding independently.
     
     

                KEY TO FORMATIVE BASED ACHIEVEMENT

    4

     Performance exceeds standard, and student consistently produces outstanding work independently

     

    3

    Performance meets standard, and student produces quality work with little to no teacher support. 

    2

     Performance is approaching standard, and student applies learned skills with some teacher support. 

    1

    Performance is below standard, and student needs much teacher support, frequent re-teaching and additional practice.
