What grades mean for credit-bearing (traditional letter grades) classes and non credit-bearing classes:
- “A” means the student currently has demonstrated mastery on a superior number of standards required to earn credit in the course.
- “B” means the student currently has demonstrated mastery on a significant number of standards required to earn credit in the course.
- “C” means the student currently has met standard on a minimum number of priority standards that are required for the course. The student will receive credit for the course.
- “F” means the student currently has met fewer than the minimal number of the Priority Standards that are required to earn credit for the course. The student will not receive credit for the course. The student is at significant risk of not successfully completing the next course in sequence or may not be promoted to the next course.
- “N/A”, is used when there is not enough evidence in a respective class for a grade to be calculated.
- “NC” means no credit has been granted for the course.
Pass/Fail Classes – A student must meet a minimal number of the priority standards in order to earn a “Pass” in the course.
