• Assessment, Grading, and Feedback at Del Mar

    Assessment and Grading Beliefs

    • Assessment and grading practices should reflect a rigorous learning environment that is supportive of ungraded practice, mistakes, learning, and ongoing feedback.
    • Formative assessments are important for practice and feedback.  While summative marks significantly determine a student’s current achievement.
    • Habits of Learning are learning behaviors that are separate from academic grades.
    • The purpose of grading is to provide students, parents, and staff with honest and clear communication about how a student is performing in a class.
