Grading for all Courses except Math

Grades for all courses except Math are calculated as follows:

  • 70%: Cognitive skills through projects
    • Students must complete all projects to pass a course
  • 30%: Mastery of content in focus areas through content assessments
    • Note: Students must pass all content assessments for power focus areas to pass a course
    • For non-AP courses, students must answer 8/10 assessment questions correctly to pass
    • For AP courses, students must answer 7/10 assessment questions correctly to pass
    • 21%: Power focus areas
    • 9%: Additional focus areas
    • Focus area percentages are based on completion and not what students score. An 8/10 mastery is worth the same as a 9/10 and 10/10.
