Grading scale

4C uses the following grading scale:

  • A: 90-100
  • B: 80-89
  • C: 70-79
  • D: 60-69
  • DNM (Does Not Meet): 0-59

Corrections

In 4C, everything is a chance to learn more! Because of this, students are always welcome to make corrections to any graded classroom assignment with the exception of Word Study assessments to improve his or her grade (this does not apply to PARCC or AimsWeb or other tests or assignments that are not graded by the teacher).

To submit corrections, please follow these guidelines:

  • Submit the original assignment.
  • Attached to it, on a separate sheet of paper, clearly indicate which problem or question is being corrected.
  • Provide a corrected answer.
  • Write a brief explanation of why the answer is correct and how the student determined this answer is correct.

The amount of points earned back will be reflected based on the effort made on the corrections. Please note that, in general, corrections should be handed in within 5 school days of the assignment being returned, though this may be shortened toward the end of marking periods to accommodate grade deadlines.

Grading errors

While every effort is made to accurately grade each assignment, there is always the possibility an error.

  • Students should take the initiative to make corrections.
  • Students and guardians are always encouraged to double check the accuracy of grades on returned assignments.
  • In the event an error is found, the student or guardian is welcome to bring it to the attention of the teacher and return the assignment, with a description of the error, for regrading.
  • If the error is verified, the teacher will update the student’s grade in the official record to reflect the revised score.
  • If the grading error is “in the student’s favor,” the student will not be penalized for the grading error, though the teacher still appreciates such errors being called to his attention.
