Grading Guidelines

The information posted on this site is designed for students and parents in grades 6 through 8 to familiarize themselves with the grading practices at the school level.

Purpose of Grading

The primary purpose of grading is to communicate academic progress to students, parents and other adults. Student grades reflect the demonstrated level of mastery of the course/curricular objectives and aid in improving learning.

These Grading Guidelines for Secondary Schools were designed to ensure that the interpretation of policies and the applications result in consistent assessment practices within schools by:

  • assisting classroom teachers in evaluating student progress fairly;
  • describing the procedures for determining student grades; and
  • communicating to parents the progress of students attending VBCPS.
