Standards-Based Grading,sometimes referred to as standards-based assessment, is a system for tracking student progress towards specific learning goals orStandards.
Instead of getting one grade for each assessment, students get one grade perStandardfor each assessment. (Here, “assessment” or “measurement” refers to any learning activity that’s graded, not specifically to Assessments in PowerSchool Learning.)
This lets you know in more detail which topics students need to practice more and which topics they’ve already mastered.
Standards-Based Grading, or SBG for short, is both an educational practiceanda tool designed to support that practice. If you'd like to learn more about SBG and how it works, check out our Introduction to Standards-Based Grading.
