IB Grading at Stonewall Middle School
Stonewall has changed its grading system to align with the requirements of the IB program. Grades will be taken on a daily basis. Grades will reflect student's level of understanding and mastery of skills presented in class. Throughout a unit of study teachers will be giving a variety of Formative Assessments that allow students to practice skills and show understanding of content. These Formative Assessments can be quizzes, homework assignments, worksheets, group work, exit slips, labs, vocabulary, or bell work. These types of Formative Assessments will account for 20% of the students overall unit grade. The remaining 80% of a student's unit grade will come from their Summative Assessment. The Summative Assessment is an end of the unit assessment that allows students to show their knowledge and skills gained throughout the unit of study. These Summative Assessments can be projects, unit tests, essays, project analysis. The Summative Assessments will also be graded against an IB rubric that ranges from 1-8. To see the specific Objectives for each subject and other information about the grading change please see the documents section on Mr. Beard’s school fusion page – located under International Baccalaureate tab on the school's webpage.
