This week, our district was able to meet with the technology center that manages our grading software to learn what options were available to us in order to finalize our pass/fail grading procedures for remote learning. We understand these past few months have been stressful, but please know we are very appreciative of your patience and flexibility as we work to meet the requirements set forth by the state, while staying within the boundaries of the software system. If you have any questions about our 4th quarter or end-of-year grading procedures, please contact your child’s teachers, school counselors or building administrators. Hubbard Elementary School Grading will remain the same as when school is in session. For the 4th grading period, the letter grade earned will be converted to show P for Pass or F for Fail. Teachers will manually average the final grade for each course, using the same system. A/Pass= 4 B=3 C=2 D=1 F=0 Example: 1st Quarter : B (3 points) 2nd Quarter: B (3 points) 3rd Quarter: A (4 points) 4th Quarter: Pass (4 points) Final Grade: 14 points /4 quarters = 3.5 = A Hubbard Middle School While the middle school will follow a Pass/Fail model, teachers must enter a percentage grade for the 4th quarter in order for ProgressBook to calculate the student’s final grade. Pass will be represented by a 93% unless a student has earned a greater average. Students who earn a greater average will receive the higher percentage. Fail will be represented by a 55%.
8th grade Algebra and Physical Science courses will follow the below guidelines for high school courses. Hubbard High School College Credit Plus Courses will follow the guidelines set forth by the college/university. While the high school will follow a Pass/Fail model, teachers must enter a percentage grade for the 4th quarter in order for ProgressBook to calculate the student’s final grade. Pass will be represented by a 93% unless a student has earned a greater average. Students who earn a greater average will receive the higher percentage. Fail will be represented by a 55%. Because the high school is not administering final exams this year, no score will be entered into that column. The software will automatically remove the final exam column from the final averaging process. The system will still remain weighted as typically done, minus the final exam. Full Year Courses Each grading period will be doubled and then the midterm score will be added. That total will be divided by 9 to calculate the final grade. In order to receive credit in a yearlong course, a student must pass two grade periods, one of which must be in the second semester. This has not changed. Once this has been completed, the system will be able to average all four grading periods, as it usually does, to calculate the final grade for the year. Second Semester Courses With No Exam Each grading period will be doubled and then that total will be divided by 4 to calculate final grade. No changes will be made to semester courses completed during the first semester of this year.
