Standards-Based Grading and Reporting Overview
Osseo Area Schools is in a three year process of implementing a new grading and reporting system for all students. “Standards-Based Grading” (SBG) means that students are graded on what they know and have learned how to do after they were taught a specific concept or skill (a “standard”). In standards-based grading systems, students, parents, and teachers have more accurate information about exactly what students should be learning and what they actually have learned as a result of instruction.
District 279 teachers and administrators have been studying standards-based grading and reporting for several years, examining local and national research and gathering input from teachers, administrators, parents and students. Parents/guardians and students will see gradual changes in our grading and reporting practices, leading up to full implementation in 2013-2014.
