Grading in Comprehensive Distance Learning
All teachers have continued to teach to the National and State Standards, including Physical Education and Music during Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). Assessing skills in a virtual setting are challenging, especially skills that involve movement or sound, as in music class. Some skills have been taught, but not assessed, in other words, not graded. You will see a “/” in the skill grade, such as in manipulatives and locomotor movement for physical education and others skills in different subjects.
The main grade that you will see in Physical Education is for Responsible Personal and Social Behavior. In on-line PE and Music, the focus is for students to have their cameras on and be actively participating. This gives evidence of the student learning and participating. Here is what the scores on the report card mean:
1=Little or no evidence towards standards (Did not attend, did not participate, or attended with camera off.)
2=Making progress towards standards (Attended and participated in most on-line PE classes.)
3=Meeting standards (This is the goal for the end of the school year. Attended classes almost always, participated entire class time, and turned in assignments which contain 80-95% correct answers.)
4=Exceeding standards (Attends every class, always participates, can teach a skill to someone else, and turns in every assignment with answers being 96-100% correct.)
