How will feedback be provided to students through grades?
DCPS believes that grades are in the service of ongoing learning, to provide timely feedback and personalized instruction, while making a record of growth and development. Student grades will be:
- A measure of skills and knowledge from content taught and learned;
- Based on standards-based evidence of student learning demonstrated in foundational course assignments and assessments;
- Accessible and available for revision and improvement throughout the term; and
- Provided frequently and accurately.
