Grading Policy

  • Grading Policy

    Riyadh Najed teachers and administrators are committed to providing our students with an educational program based on assessment practices that are rooted in educational research and support student achievement. To support these efforts and establish a system where formative assessment informs and drives instruction, and summative assessment is a true and accurate measure of a student’s academic achievement, we have made a commitment to improve assessment and grading practices in every content area and in every classroom.

    Through honest, professional dialogue and team collaboration, our staff has developed an informed and forward thinking philosophy as well as a campus wide assessment policy that provides our students with frequent formative assessments for learning as well as summative assessments of learning for grade reporting purposes. The primary objectives in revising our grading practices are to insure the following:

  • Grades in every course and content area are an accurate measure of academic achievement.
  • Equitable and consistent assessment measures support mastery of content.
  • Students have a clear picture of, and are actively involved in their progress toward college and career readiness.
  • The purpose of this policy is to ensure that grading and promotion are consistent and fair

    Guiding Principles
  • The purpose of grading is to communicate the level of mastery of course content standards and clearly articulated learning targets.
  • Common assessments and rubrics should be collaboratively designed and utilized so that performance levels and grades are fair and consistent in synonymous courses.
  • Well-planned instruction provides students with a clear understanding of teacher expectations through learning targets, rubrics, assessment criteria and when appropriate, student samples.
  • Effective instruction includes frequent formative assessments with clear and understandable teacher feedback with opportunities to relearn and redo.
  • Assessment of knowledge and skills should include multiple measures and a variety of evidence to accurately determine a student’s proficiency level.
  • Students have the right to:
  • Be informed by the school of their academic progress.
  • Have periodic reviews of their instructional achievement by the school staff.
  • Academic marks in each class that represent fairly and impartially their academic progress in that class.
