Reporting of student achievement is aligned to the A-E common grade scale twice a year for Years 1-6. The common grade scale (A-E) is a description of the students’ knowledge, understanding and skill development that has been demonstrated at that point in time in regards to the work that has been addressed to that point.

It is not a comparison with peers but a comparison to a regulated standard. 

The Common Grade Scale describes performance at each of five grade levels.

A

The student has an extensive knowledge and understanding of the content and can readily apply this knowledge. In addition, the student has achieved a very high level of competence in the processes and skills and can apply these skills to new situations.

B

The student has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the content and a high level of competence in the processes and skills. In addition, the student is able to apply this knowledge and these skills to most situations.

C

D

The student has a basic knowledge and understanding of the content and has achieved a limited level of competence in the processes and skills.
