PART 1 Explanation of standards based grading, How are standards based grades calculated in Pinnacle. This scenario does not apply to schools using grade replacement. NOTE THE PURPOSE OF THIS SCENARIO IS TO DEMONSTRATE HOW PINNACLE CALCULATES A. STANDARDS BASED COURSE GRADE IT IS NOT INTENDED AS A HOW TO GUIDE FOR GRADING. PRACTICES GRADING PRACTICES AT YOUR SCHOOL ARE DETERMINED BY YOUR SITE. ADMINISTRATORS,In the grade book there are 2 assignments. Test A has no standards attached You can tell the assignment does NOT have any standards. attached by noticing there is NOT a sign on the right corner of the assignment. Test B outlined in red has standards MA1 0 and MA6 0 attached. The screenshot below shows the scores for a student named Jimmy. The score for Test A will have NO EFFECT on the final grade because it does not contain a standard. The score for Test B 1 5 NP is the result of the 2 standards attached to the assessment. There are only 2 standards in the grade book at this point MA1 0 and MA6 0 The Fall Semester. grade on the right is the average of the scores of those 2 standards. MA1 0 has one score 2 from Test B,o The overall score for MA1 0 2. MA6 0 has one score 1 from Test B,o The overall score for MA6 0 1. Because Jimmy did poorly on both MA1 0 and MA6 0 the teacher reassessed Jimmy on both standards. at a later time The scores for the reassessment are recorded in Test C outlined in red. Alliance College Ready Public Schools 1940 S Figueroa Street Los Angeles CA 90007. To see how the Fall Semester grade is calculated we have to first calculate the overall scores for each. standard that has been assessed, MA1 0 has two scores 2 from Test B and 3 5 from Test C.
o The overall score for MA1 0 The average of 2 and 3 5 2 75. MA6 0 has two scores 1 from Test B and 1 from Test C. o The overall score for MA6 0 The average of 1 and 1 1. The Fall Semester grade is the average of the overall scores of the standards MA1 0 score MA6 0. score 2 2 75 1 2 1 875 1 88, You can see the overall scores of the standards by switching from Assignments to view by Objectives. High Priority Standards, Alliance College Ready Public Schools 1940 S Figueroa Street Los Angeles CA 90007. Since Jimmy showed proficiency on MA1 0 but is still struggling with MA6 0 the teacher reteaches. MA6 0 and assigns extra practice After 2 weeks of hard work by Jimmy he is reassessed This time he. is only assessed on MA6 0 The result is recorded in Test D with only standard MA6 0 attached. We are viewing by Assignments, To calculate the Fall Semester on the right we have to first calculate the overall scores for each. standard that has been assessed, MA1 0 remains unchanged It has two scores 2 from Test B and 3 5 from Test C. o The overall score for MA1 0 The average of 2 and 3 5 2 75. MA6 0 now has a third score from Test D 1 from Test B 1 from Test C and 3 from Test D. o The overall score for MA6 0 The average of 1 1 and 3 1 67. The Fall Semester grade is the average of the overall scores of the standards MA1 0 score MA6 0. score 2 2 75 1 67 2 2 208 2 21, Switching to view by Objectives High Priority Standards.
NOTE IF THE TEACHER MAKES A PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT THAT JIMMY HAS EARNED A HIGHER. SCORE ON MA6 0 THAN THE CURRENTLY SCORE OF 1 67 HE CAN EXCUSE ONE OF HIS EARLIER SCORES. OF 1 TO GET A HIGHER SCORE FOR STANDARDS MA6 0, Alliance College Ready Public Schools 1940 S Figueroa Street Los Angeles CA 90007. The reason Jimmy s score for MA6 0 is still not proficient is because the first two scores of 1 and 1 are. weighing down the average The teacher updates the first score of 1 as EXCUSED by typing an X into. the cell in Assignment Test B, Notice the Fall Semester on the right changed from 2 21 to 2 38. MA1 0 remains unchanged It has two scores 2 from Test B and 3 5 from Test C. o The overall score for MA1 0 The average of 2 and 3 5 2 75. MA6 0 now has 1 EXCUSED score and 2 other scores EXCUSED from Test B 1 from Test C. and 3 from Test D, o The overall score for MA6 0 The average of 1 and 3 2 00. The Fall Semester grade is the average of the overall scores of the standards MA1 0 score MA6 0. score 2 2 75 2 00 2 2 375 2 38, Switching to view by Objectives High Priority Standards. NOTE AT A LATER TIME THE TEACHER MAY DECIDE TO REASSESS JIMMY ON BOTH STANDARDS. MA1 0 AND MA6 0 TO CONFIRM THAT JIMMY HAS REACHED PROFICIENCY IN BOTH STANDARDS. AND IF JIMMY DEMONSTRATES PROFICIENCY AGAIN THE TEACHER CAN DEPENDING UPON SCHOOL. POLICY CHOOSE TO EXCUSE THE EARLIER NON PROFICIENT SCORES. Alliance College Ready Public Schools 1940 S Figueroa Street Los Angeles CA 90007. PART 2 Pinnacle Differences Then and Now, Overview Previously in Pinnacle grade book most schools were grading based on.

been calculated normally, e In order to revert back to the standards based grading click on assignments and. then Objectives Course Grade Delete the Overall Course Grade column This. will not delete the grade but refresh the right hand column Refresh the browser. or log out and then log back in to see changes, Alliance College Ready Public Schools 1940 S Figueroa Street Los Angeles CA 90007. 3 Grades don t seem to be calculating correctly based on what I. see in the gradebook,a Previous Grades based on assignments. b Current Grades based on standards, c If the same standard is assessed 3 times and a different standard is assessed once. Grades would be based on an average of 2 standards and not 4 different. assignments, d The easiest way to see this is to go to click on the Assignments drop down box.
