Scoring and Reporting Guide

10 days ago


Why do we score student work and report scores?


At LRHS, reporting scores on student work has two main purposes:

1.     To provide a concise overall snapshot of student achievement to students, homes, colleges, and employers, for decisions about scholarships, admission, and employment.

2.     To provide specific information to students and homes about what students know and are able to do, for the support of academic achievement and success.

To meet the first purpose, we report an overall course score, in the form of a percentage grade.

To meet the second purpose we report indicator scores on multiple, clear learning expectations for each course.  These learning expectations, called performance indicators, are drawn from standards established by the state.  We use indicator scores because they allow us to

·       spell out exactly what students are expected to know and be able to do

·       give specific feedback about academic accomplishments and areas for improvement


·       enable us to provide additional learning in areas of need and enrich learning in areas of success


What scores do we report?

To meet the different purposes for reporting, we report two different kinds of scores: an indicator score, and a percentage score.  Indicator scores will be used to score student assignments.  For the report card, indicator scores will be averaged and converted to a percentage score.

How do we determine indicator scores?

For every performance indicator, there are scoring criteria that describe what student work looks like at the 1, 2, 3, and 4 score levels.  

 

What counts for the indicator score?

Assignments called demonstration tasks count for the indicator score.  These tasks are designed as demonstrations of what students know and are able to do for each indicator, and are measured by the appropriate scoring criteria.  Some demonstration tasks provide evidence of specific components of an indicator; others provide evidence of all components working together.  These larger, more complex demonstration tasks will carry a greater weight in the overall indicator score.  All demonstration task scores count.

 

Can demonstration tasks be remediated for a higher score?

Yes—even if the score is already passing.  Students will complete a Remediation Plan for any demonstration task they have to or choose to remediate. 

 

Don’t learning checks count?

Learning checks are designed as practice—not to provide full evidence of meeting expectations.  This practice work informs teachers and students about student progress. Because we want students to practice a lot without penalty, learning check scores do not count in the indicator score.

 

When does the indicator score convert to the percentage score?

Most indicators will be measured multiple times in a course.  The average of those indicator scores will be continuously available on Schoology.  Each quarter, we will convert these indicator scores and the course score to percentage scores, and record that score in the Infinite Campus (IC) report card.  IC course scores are NOT an average of indicator scores in IC—they are the conversion of the course scores from Schoology.  NOTE: Indicator scores are cumulative, so the indicator score will change each time the indicator is measured on a demonstration task.
