For assignments that are graded based on standards and a rubric, the rubric may have 5 sections:
- 5 = above standard
- 4.4 = standard is met
- 3.7 = reaching towards standard
- 3 = standard not met
- 2.5 = standard not attempted
The reasons for the numbers is to translate from standards-based grading to percentages/letter grading:
- 5/5 = 100% = A
- 4.4/5 = 88% = B
- 3.7/5 = 74% = C
- 3/5 = 60% = D
- 2.5 = 50% = F
Missing = 0 until the student turns in the assignment. If the student doesn’t turn the work in, it gets a 2.5 The reason for giving the student 50% is so that the grade is still failing, and the student cannot continue not turning in work if he or she wishes to pass. However, giving points means that just a few missing assignments won’t destroy a student’s grade and give him or her no chance at raising it enough to pass.
Incomplete = whatever grade the student earns based on the rubric. Then, give the assignment back with a chance to increase the grade. If it’s not turned back in, the grade will stay as is.
