费郡学校秋季将实施全新评分系统

从今年秋季新学年开始,维州费郡将启用全新成绩评分系统,重点帮助学业有困难的学生提高学习成绩。启用新的评分系统后,初中和高中的学生将更不容易拿到不及格。

费郡教育联合会候任主席凯文希克森表示:我们基本上不希望惩罚孩子。我们的目标是检验学生的学习效果而不是学习习惯。我们可以允许学生迟交作业,如果学生考试没有得到80分以上的可以允许学生重考。

希克森表示:我不认为这意味没有人会不及格,因为最终,如果学生什么作业都不做的话还是会吃零分的。

根据新的评分系统采纳的“无零政策” (no zero policy),只要学生努力完成作业,就会获得高于50分的成绩。这个“无零政策”旨在减少,或限制学生得零分的机会。

新的评分系统对学习成绩良好的学生将不会有任何影响。但是希克森也表示,因为教师将在差生上花费更多的时间,这有可能会影响整体教育平衡。

希克森还指出,反对者的意见是这套新的评分系统将消耗教师更多的时间,因为教师需要审批迟交的作业,并为希望重考的学生出考卷。

据悉,这一成绩评分系统是基于教育研究系统10到15年的研究成果。费郡学校并没有独创这一新领域,但是属于早期采纳这一在全国范围内逐渐升温的热点教育理念。

希克森表示,新的评分系统实施后一定需要微调,他鼓励家长监督孩子的学习成绩,做出的努力和获得的成就。

以下是新的评分系统具体信息:

Changes to Middle and High School Grading & Reporting Handbooks (2016-17)

Separation of Work Habits and Achievement

    • All grades entered into the gradebook will relate directly to the standards listed in the Program of Studies or other designated curriculum and should reflect a student’s mastery of content or skills.
    • Student’s attendance, effort, attitude or other behaviors will be communicated to parents through report comments or other means that do not include grades.
    • Late work will be accepted to document learning/mastery. Teacher teams must set reasonable guidelines for turning in late work to encourage work completion by their students. If a student misses an assignment, a placeholder (such as M for missed, I for incomplete, etc.) should be entered into the grade book.
    • Patterns of late work should be reported to parents through email or other means.
    • Homework for practice or preparation for instruction may account for no more than 10% of a quarter grade.
    • Class participation may be included in a student’s grade if it is based on the quality of a student response and not the quantity of responses. If a team will include class participation in a student’s grade, guidelines for assessing must be included in the course syllabus.
    • Students will not be given extra credit or grades for activities such as bringing in classroom materials, providing parent signatures, participating in fundraising/charitable events or participating in non-curricular activities.

Maximum/Minimum Weights Grades Can Carry

  • Collaborative teams are encouraged to set grading design so that no one assignment/assessment counts more than 30% of the quarter grade.

Retakes with Associated Guidelines

  • For major assessments, at least one new opportunity to demonstrate proficiency shall be provided to any student who scores below an 80% and completes corrective action determined by collaborative team.
  • An opportunity to demonstrate increased proficiency may be provided to students who score at or above 80% at the discretion of the collaborative team.
  • If not all students are afforded the second opportunity then the highest grade that can be earned is an 80%.
  • If all students are afforded the second opportunity then the highest grade shall be recorded in the grade book.
    Limiting or Eliminating Zeros in a 100 Point Scale
  • If a student has been given multiple opportunities to complete work and has not done so, a 0 may be entered in the gradebook at the end of the quarter.
  • If a student has made a reasonable attempt to complete work, teams are encouraged to assign a grade no lower than 50.
  • Schools that have established “no zero” polices in previous years may continue those policies
