Standards Based Grading

What is Standards Based Grading (SBG)?

  • Grading system that measures a student’s achievement based on their performance on predetermined learning targets or standards.
  • A single score (0-4) is recorded for each learning target that is being measured
  • Students not scored on the amount of work they do, but on their ability to successfully perform each skill/learning target
  • Students have multiple opportunities to show mastery of a particular skill
    • Ways to show mastery:
      • Traditional paper & pencil assessment
      • Orally
      • Informally as I am circulating around the classroom helping students.
