Standards-Based Grading

 

 

      Standards are final learning goals or

outcomes. Standards can be found in the

Curriculum Now database on FCPS.org (Click on

Curriculum Now under the Academics tab on the

main page) and focus on National and State College and Career Readiness

Standards.

 

      In standards-based grading, students receive a grade for each standard or set of related standards.

 

      If you have questions about a specific grade or the grading practices in a class, contact the teacher for that class.
