Standards-Based Grading

placeholder

In fall 2017, RUSD began the transition to Standards-Based Grading and Learning. Instead of a single overall grade, Standards-Based Learning breaks down the subject matter into smaller concepts that students should master by the end of the course.

Throughout the term, student learning on each concept is recorded. Teachers track student progress, give appropriate feedback and adapt instruction to meet student needs. This shift in grading makes for stronger instruction that benefits all students.

Your child will now receive a Standards-Based Report Card for the following content areas:

  • Reading & English Language Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Music and Art
  • Physical Education and Health Education
  • High School: Freshman Seminar and Algebra 1
  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • World Languages
  • Career & Technical Education
