Proficiency Scales

Classrooms that are piloting Target Based Grading are using the standards specific proficiency scale similar to the following:



(You got it!)

Student has demonstrated content proficiency and skill application of the outcomes for the particular target at this point in the school year.



(Almost got it!)

Student has demonstrated partial proficiency of the expected content/skills in the assessment. Partial development indicates a progress with gaps in understanding or perhaps certain misconceptions.


Needs Support

(Not yet!)

Student has demonstrated little or no evidence of content proficiency of outcomes. The student has large gaps in understanding and/or application and is able to show success only with significant adult assistance.

What's coming in the future...

Administration and pilot groups are currently having discussions on how to add a '4' proficiency level to indicate advanced performance.



Student shows in-depth inferences and applications above the proficiency level.
