    This a 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 many 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.
