Renton School District

K-8 Standards-Based Grading and Reporting

Renton elementary and middle schools use six common grading principles and district-defined grading criteria to reduce the subjectivity of individual teacher grades. Standards-based grading tends to be less subjective than the traditional A-F grading system where the components of academic achievement are less well defined. In Renton K-8 schools, teachers do not grade in isolation; instead, they collaborate with their PLC members to create scoring rubrics that provide specific criteria and communicate student progress in a way that is more detailed and less subjective than the traditional point-based system of an A-F grading system.
