Here is a general idea of how we assess students. Detailed rubrics are available upon request.
Students may earn a 4 if they can demonstrate skills BEYOND our first grade standards.
A 4 is not obtainable in all standards.
Students earn a 3 when they show mastery of a first grade standard.
We strive for 3s on each standard by the end of the 4th quarter.
2- Partially Proficient
Students earn a 2 when they need assistance with a standard.
This means that they can do it with some help, but are still making errors.
2s are OK! It means that we are learning.
Students earn a 1 when they need 1-on-1 help with a standard.
It is common to see 1s during the 1st and even 2nd quarters.
