Provide Feedback on Standards-Based Grading

More teachers across Highline are using a standards-based approach to grading assignments and giving feedback. We hope to pilot a new standards-based report card soon and want to hear your thoughts.

Standards-based grading is a method of assessing students’ progress of learning and understanding of specific concepts. Rather than a simple letter grade, students receive grades in multiple learning targets. This helps students understand which concepts they know well and which they need to improve on.

Learn more information about standards-based grading and see our frequently asked questions (FAQs).

We invite all staff, families and students to attend a virtual focus group to provide feedback on standards-based grading and the new report card.
