Student progress in middle school is measured against a set of Woodlawn standards which outline what a student should know and be able to do in each subject area at the end of each grade. Based on formative and summative assessments throughout the trimester, teachers identify areas of strength and areas for improvement. Teacher comments are included in each report card and the core subject areas receive letter grades based on the following A – F grading scale:
A 100-93 A- 92-90
B+ 89-87 B 86-83 B- 80-82
C+ 79-77 C 76-73 C- 72-70
D+ 69-67 D 66-63 D- 62-60
- A Work that is exemplary and represents complete mastery in the ability to organize, apply, and relate information.
- B Work that demonstrates progression towards mastery and shows development in the ability to organize, apply, and relate information.
- C Work that fulfills the requirements but lacks depth in the areas of organization, application, and relevancy.
- D Work that shows some involvement but is incomplete, inaccurate, or inconclusive.
- F Failing. Work that lacks understanding, application, or motivation.
