2009-2010 GSIS scale

  • In the 2009 - 2010 school year GSIS high school will be reporting student grades based on the descriptions below.
  • In other words, earning 80% on a quiz DOES NOT mean you will earn a "C." Instead, the teacher assesses your performance on the quiz (or any other work) against the criteria below to determine whether the product is A or B or C, etc.
  • "A" is not 98% on a quiz, but an "A" is "A consistant understanding and thorough..." etc.

 

A

A consistent [A1] and thorough [A2] understanding of the required knowledge and skills, and the ability to apply them almost faultlessly in a wide variety of situations [A3] . There is consistent evidence of analysis, synthesis and evaluation where appropriate [A4]. The student consistently demonstrates originality [A5] and insight [A6] and always produces work of high quality [A7].


B

 

A consistent and thorough understanding of the required knowledge and skills, and the ability to apply them in a variety of situations [B1]. The student generally shows evidence of analysis, synthesis and evaluation where appropriate [B2] and occasionally [B3] demonstrates originality and insight.


C

 

A general understanding of the required knowledge and skills [C1], and the ability to apply them effectively in normal situations [C2]. There is occasional evidence of the skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation [C3].


D

 

Limited achievement against most of the course target, or clear difficulties in some areas [D1]. The student demonstrates a limited understanding of the required knowledge and skills and is only able to apply them fully in normal situations with support.


F

Very limited achievement against most or all of the course targets. The student has difficulty in understanding the required knowledge and skills, and is unable to apply them fully in normal situations, even with support.

 

 

 

 


Another way to see the comparison...


A - A consistent and thorough understanding of the required knowledge and skills, and the ability to apply them almost faultlessly in a wide variety of situations.

 

B - A consistent and thorough understanding of the required knowledge and skills, and the ability to apply them in a variety of situations.

 

C- A general understanding of the required knowledge and skills, and the ability to apply them effectively in normal situations.

 

D - Limited achievement against most of the course target, or clear difficulties in some areas.

 

F -Very limited achievement against most or all of the course targets.


A - There is consistent evidence of analysis, synthesis and evaluation where appropriate. The student consistently demonstrates originality and insight and always produces work of high quality.

 

B - The student generally shows evidence of analysis, synthesis and evaluation where appropriate and occasionally demonstrates originality and insight.

 

C- There is occasional evidence of the skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation.

 

D - The student demonstrates a limited understanding of the required knowledge and skills and is only able to apply them fully in normal situations with support.

 

F - The student has difficulty in understanding the required knowledge and skills, and is unable to apply them fully in normal situations, even with support.
