On April 16th, the Governing Board approved changes to Scottsdale Unified School District’s grading practices that will be implemented in 2013-14 school year. The recommendations were developed by a committee made up of teachers, parents, administrators and high school students. The committee studied the discrepancies between report card grades and performance on standardized assessments and the inconsistencies in grading practices across the District. In order to develop the recommendations, they studied best practices from experts across the country. The recommendations were designed to improve consistency while increasing academic rigor by focusing on student’s abilities to demonstrate what they have learned. The majority of a student’s grade will be determined based on how well they perform on assessments which include projects, essays, portfolios, tests, etc. This proficiency based system will help us better prepare our students with the knowledge and skills they need to be prepared for higher education and the workforce.
