A GUIDE TO STANDARDS BASED LEARNING
NeoCity Academy is engaged in the process of transitioning our grading practices. Standards based learning is the practice of instructing and assessing students on pre-determined expectations of what the student will know and be able to do.
These expectations are written as explicit standards for each course, such as:
- Identify and explain claims and evidence within an argument. - AP English Language
- Identify an appropriate mathematical definition, theorem, or test to apply. - AP Calculus AB
- Explain how modifications to an experimental procedure will alter results. - AP Chemistry
Assessments, such as homework, quizzes, tests, and projects, provide students the opportunity to demonstrate their progress in meeting or exceeding the standard. Grades will be determiend on whether the student has exceeded, met, or not yet met the standard.
