Standards-Based Grading

UNDERSTANDING WHAT STANDARDS-BASED GRADING (SBG) MEANS FOR HMS STUDENTS

Every Student FUTURE READY

HMS STANDARDS-BASED GRADING

Grading practices will focus on students’ demonstration of their mastery of academic standards. This will help us better understand what students truly know and can do.  Factors not based on academic learning such as extra credit, bonus points, student behavior, work ethic, and homework
performance will no longer be combined with academic learning to help determine grades.

Student behavior, work ethic, and homework performance will be communicated with families through progress reports.  Progress reports that communicate students’ mastery of their learning standards will be issued at the end of every quarter.

HANNIBAL MIDDLE SCHOOL (HMS) IS IMPROVING OUR GRADING PRACTICES.

We want to communicate what students know and are able to do based on Missouri Learning Standards.

Through standards-based grading, academic learning is the focus of what is recorded and communicated on student progress reports.
