How Will Assessment Information Be Reported

Olympia High School will continue to give students traditional grades A, B, C, D, and F even though we will be utilizing a Skill Based Reporting system.  All student grades will be reported on a student transcript and a grade point average will be computed for each students.

Student assessment work will be communicated given t
he following descriptions that describe student mastery levels.  These levels do not equate to 4=A, 3=B, 2=C, D=1, etc.  These levels allow students to know where they are in the level of mastery and will define for the student the next step in their learning.  Some students will choose to reassess based on their level of mastery.  Students need to understand that a level of 3 indicates where they need to be while a 4 illustrates their ability to apply the skills at a higher level.
