Covid-19 Closure Remote Learning Grading Policy

Remote Learning Grading Policy

Updated 4/27/2020 2:30 PM

               Students will be graded during the Covid-19 School Closure according to a Pass/Fail, Credit/No Credit policy.  The determination for whether a student receives a P or an F (and therefore whether they receive credit/no credit) for the period of remote learning time will be determined by the following rubric:

Pass

Fail

The student engaged in the remote learning activities and sessions to the best of their abilities given all known variables specific to that student’s situation.  The student showed a good-faith effort to keep current with the remote learning schedule and activities.

The student did not engage in the remote learning activities and sessions to the best of their abilities even when taking into consideration all known variables specific to their situation.  The student did not make a good-faith effort to keep current with the remote learning schedule and activities. 

 

              With school declared closed for the rest of the year per Governor Baker's directive the quarter-by quarter percentages will be as follows:

Quarter 1

Quarter 2

1st Half of Quarter 3 (up to dismissal)

Remote Learning Time

35%

35%

15%

15%

 

               A student who receives a “Pass” designation for the Remote Learning Time will receive the grade of “100” for that time.  A student who receives a “Fail” designation for the Remote Learning Time will receive a grade of “55” for that time.  The designation of “Fail” for any student is subject to review by administration to make sure all pertinent information regarding the specific student’s situation, that the classroom teacher may not be aware of, is considered and taken into account. 

               The score of 100 is meant to provide incentive to students to participate to the fullest extent their particular situation allows them as this grade will help increase their overall average in the year.  

               This grading policy is written to reflect the circumstances the Covid-19 pandemic present at this current date, April 27th, 2020 and may need to be changed if situations dictate such.
