Types of Grading

 
 

Grading Categories

Grades are separated into two categories, summative and formative assessments. As per Lafayette Parish School Board policy, grades are weighed according to the category they fall into. Summative assessments are 60% of the grade while formative assessments are 40%. In the section below, I will explain both types of assessments with examples.

Summative Assessments

 

Summative assessments are the end of the unit tests that test all the knowledge gained during the unit. These types of tests are given before the class moves on to a new topic. This type of assessment is weighed 60% of the grade.

 

Examples in this class:

    • Projects
    • Published Writing
    • Story Test
    • Grammar Tests
    • Spelling Tests

 

Formative Assessments

 

Formative assessments are given during a unit in order to determine how students are understanding the lessons. The results guide how I teach. I am not expecting students to have mastered the concepts completely. This type of assessment is weighed 40% of the grade.

 

Examples in this class:

    • Daily Questions
    • Daily Writing
    • Discussion
    • Exit Tickets
    • Response Journals
    • Graphic Organizers
    • Think Pair Share
    • Savings and Loans
    • Homework
