Your student receives two categories of grades. One category is Accountability. The other category is Achievement.
This year in Science, the Achievement Grade will be determined by a 50/30/20 or 45/35/20 split of Primary Assessments, Secondary Assessments and Recall Assessments, respectively.
- Primary Assessments are abbreviated PA. They are major tests/projects that account for 45-50% of your student's grade.
- Secondary Assessments are abbreviated SA. They are less comprehensive and shorter in length than the PA's. They comprise 30-35% of your student's grade.
- Recall Assessments are abbreviated RA. Recall tests/projects require less application of knowledge and are relatively short. RA's make up 20% of your student's grade.
