HCPSS / POLICIES

Policy 8020 Implementation Procedures - Grading and Reporting: Middle and High School

Implementation Procedures

This document has been temporarily modified during the 2021-2022 school year to support COVID-19 recovery needs.

I. Notification/Dissemination

The principal will inform all students, parents, and employees of the provisions of this policy annually and at other times as appropriate. This may be done in the following ways:

  1. Making announcements via the public address system at the beginning of the school year.

  2. Publishing the information in school newsletters.

  3. Publishing the information in employee/student handbooks.

  4. Making the information available for new students through the registration process.

II. Grading

  1. Determining Quarterly Student Grades

    1. The letter grade will be used to indicate the individual level of achievement of each student in relation to attainment of course objectives.

    2. During SY21-22, curriculum coordinators will work with teachers and other stakeholders to collaboratively create quarterly grading parameters to include percentages, appropriate short-term (formative) assignments and summative tasks by content area and/or grade level. Neither summative nor short-term assignment categories should exceed 70%.

    3. Short-term assignments may include a variety of classwork such as independent work, individually graded group work, oral responses, and other tasks.

    4. Summative tasks may involve examinations (e.g., tests or quizzes) and tasks/projects (e.g., longer-term assignments, essays, projects). Both short-term assignments and summative tasks should include a variety of types of work. Tasks will be graded on demonstration of performance objectives, quality of work, and completeness.

    5. At the end of SY21-22, the parameters will be submitted for review to the Division of Academics Leadership Team. Once accepted, parameters will be reviewed by the Division of Academics Leadership Team annually. Parameters may or may not change annually but any changes will be made collaboratively with educators and the Division of Academics. Recommendations for changes to grading parameters will be subject to a comment period prior to review.

    6. Extra credit is not offered in Grades 6-12. However, students may be provided with opportunities to recover credit and demonstrate mastery through other relevant coursework. Opportunities should be given to students who are not passing whenever possible.

    7. Within the first five days of class, every teacher will distribute to their students an explanation of how students’ grades will be calculated. This information will be made available to parents both in writing and through the learning management system. Prior to distribution to students, the administrator will review and approve the teacher’s grading explanations.

  2. Assessments for Courses Taken for High School Credit

    1. 1.0 credit or more courses

      1. At the end of the fourth marking period, a final assessment will be given.

      2. Assessments may take different formats, including but not limited to, a report, capstone project, portfolio, or multiple choice test.

      3. In high school, the quality points for the final assessment grade will constitute 1/10 of the final grade for the course. 

      4. In middle school, the assessment grade will be calculated as a grade within quarter 4.

      5. No student is exempt from assessments, and assessments may not be taken/due before a scheduled assessment date.

      6. Non-traditional courses may not have a final assessment or these may be scheduled for a different time. 

    2. A student on suspension or expulsion at assessment time will be permitted to take the assessment and will remain eligible to qualify for the awarding of course credit.

  3. Determining Final Grades and Credit – Middle School

    1. Only the final grade and/or code will be retained on the Student Records Systems card.

    2. Final middle school grades will be determined by translating the letter grade for each marking period and each assessment using the following quality points scale:

      • A = 4

      • B = 3

      • C = 2

      • D = 1

      • E = 0

        1. 1.0 credit courses

          1. For high school courses taught in middle school, the final assessment will be included in the fourth quarter grades.

          2. Multiply the quality points for each marking period grade by two. Add the quality points for each assessment grade. Compute the sum and divide by eight.

          3. For reporting purposes, the quotient will be converted to a letter grade using the following scale:

            • A = 3.50-4.00

            • B = 2.50-3.49

            • C = 1.50-2.49

            • D = 0.75-1.49

            • E = Below 0.75 (No Credit)

            Note: The average for a D must be 0.75 to 1.49 in order for credit to be awarded.

            Example:

            Marking Period Grade Marking Period Grade Marking Period Grade Marking Period Grade

            A=4

            B=3

            B=3

            A=4

            x2

            x2

            x2

            x2

            8

            6

            6

            8

            28 divided by 8 = 3.5, Final Grade A

        2. 0.50 credit courses 

          1. Multiply the quality points for each marking period grade by two and compute their sum. Divide by four.

          2. For reporting purposes, the quotient will be converted to a letter grade using the following scale:

            • A = 3.50-4.00

            • B = 2.50-3.49

            • C = 1.50-2.49

            • D = 0.75-1.49

            • E = Below 0.75 (no credit)

            Note: The average for a D must be 0.75 to 1.49 in order for credit to be awarded.

            Example:

            Marking Period Grade Marking Period Grade

            C=2

            B=3

            x2

            x2

            4

            6

            10 divided by 4 = 2.5, Final Grade B

        3. For 0.25 courses (quarter-credit courses) the quarter grade will be the final grade.

  4. Determining Final Grades and Credit –High School

    1. Only the final grade and/or code will be retained on the Student Records Systems card.

    2. Final grades will be determined by translating the letter grade for each marking period using the following quality points scale:

      • A = 4

      • B = 3

      • C = 2

      • D = 1

      • E = 0

        1. 1.0 credit courses

          1. Multiply the quality points for each marking period grade by 0.225. Multiply the quality points for the final assessment grade by 0.10. Compute the sum.

          2. For reporting purposes, the quotient will be converted to a letter grade using the following scale:

            • A = 3.50-4.00

            • B = 2.50-3.49

            • C = 1.50-2.49

            • D = 0.75-1.49

            • E = Below 0.75 (No Credit)

            Note: The average for a D must be 0.75 to 1.49 in order for credit to be awarded.

            Example:

            Marking Period Grade Marking Period Grade Marking Period Grade Marking Period Grade Final Exam

            A = 4 x 0.225

            B = 3 x 0.225

            B = 3 x 0.225

            A = 4 x 0.225

            C = 2 x 0.10

            0.9

            0.675

            0.675

            0.9

            0.2

            Total = 3.35, Final Grade B

        2. For 0.50 courses.

          1. Multiply the quality points for each marking period grade by 0.5. Compute the sum.

          2. For reporting purposes, the quotient will be converted to a letter grade using the following scale:

            • A = 3.50-4.00

            • B = 2.50-3.49

            • C = 1.50-2.49

            • D = 0.75-1.49

            • E = Below 0.75 (no credit)

            Note:  The average for a D must be 0.75 to 1.49 in order for credit to be awarded.

            Example:

            Marking Period Grade: C = 2 x 0.5 = 1

            Marking Period Grade: B = 3 x 0.5 = 1.5

            Total = 2.5 Final, Grade B

    3. For a 1.0 credit or more course to earn credit, a student must earn at least a 0.75 year-end average and either (a) pass one marking period each semester or (b) pass both marking periods in the second semester. For a 0.50 credit course to earn credit, a student must pass at least one marking period with at least a 0.75 end-of-course average.

    4. If a student retakes a course when credit was previously earned:

      1. The student may earn credit more than once for the same course only if the course is designated as such in the Catalog of Approved High School Courses.

      2. If the course is not designated as eligible for additional credit in the Catalog of Approved High School Courses, the student may still retake the course.

      3. Both the final grades from taking the course originally and for retaking the course will be recorded on the transcript. Any course, original or retaken, taken in high school, will be included in the high school GPA.

  5. Non-traditional Courses

    1. Original credit – Original credit course grades earned will be reflected on the high school transcript and calculated in the cumulative GPA.

    2. Credit recovery (Review Credit in COMAR) – For credit recovery course grades, both the final grades from taking the course originally and for retaking the course will be included in the cumulative GPA if taken in high school. Both courses will be recorded on the transcript.

    3. Students retaking a non-traditional course to earn credit for a course in which they were previously enrolled will have both courses and final grades listed on the official transcript. The new grade will not replace the grade earned on a previous attempt.

  6. Implementation of Codes

    Codes used for courses taken in middle school and high school

    1. I (Incomplete) Code

      1. Incomplete codes will be issued only for marking period grades and only upon approval of the principal/designee when a student has been unable to complete required course work due to legal absences or other extenuating circumstances.

      2. Incomplete codes must be converted to a letter grade no later than ten days after the issuance of the report card, except in unusual circumstances as approved by the principal/designee. At the end of the two weeks, the teacher will change the incomplete code to the appropriate grade and notify the student and parent.

      3. If a student transfers into an HCPSS school with a code of I as a final grade, the student will receive no credit for that course and it will not be calculated into the cumulative GPA. If it is a marking period grade, it will be calculated into marking period GPAs in accordance with this policy.

    2. N/A (Not Available) codes will be used when transfer students (in-county or from out-of-county) are missing grades from one marking period. Courses with N/A codes will receive credit and will be calculated into the cumulative GPA. The final grade will be the average of the remaining quarters and/or assessment grades. N/A codes may also be used as a place holder for non-traditional courses until the marking period and/or assessment grades are recorded at the end of the semester. If an N/A code is needed for another reason, counselors should request permission from the Office of School Counseling.

      When the achievement of Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals requires a schedule change, N/A codes will be used for missing marking period and/or assessment grades in a new course.

      If a student moves out of the state of Maryland within 14 school days of the last day of school (or end of first semester) and is not beginning in their new school for the remainder of the year, a principal can allow the student to accept the grade at time of withdrawal for Q4 or Q2.

    3. W (Withdrawal) Code

      W codes indicate that a student withdrew from a course after the designated date for withdrawal (14 school days from the start of the course).

      1. If a student transfers between levels of the same course, a W code will not be assigned. The grade the student earned in the original course will be averaged into the new course. The new teacher may require make-up work.

      2. If a student transfers to a different course prior to the designated date for withdrawal, a W code will not be assigned. The student will not be required to make up work in the new course if the schedule change is made prior to the W date, if make-up work is completed it may be averaged into the current marking period grade.

      3. If a student withdraws from a course and transfers to a different course after the designated date for withdrawal, a code of W will be assigned in the withdrawn class and no credit will be awarded. The schedule change form will be placed in the student’s cumulative record. The teacher of the new course may recommend work for the student in order to gain missing content, and it will be the teacher’s decision if it will be included in the student’s grade. The principal may permit a student to earn credit in the new course until the mid-point of the course (i.e., end of second marking period for 1.0 credit or more courses).

      4. Level changes will only be permitted until the mid-point of the course (i.e., end of second marking period for 1.0 credit courses.

      5. If an IEP team determines a student needs a change in schedule to make progress toward meeting their IEP goals, a code of W will be assigned in the withdrawn class. The student may earn credit in the new course, and the final grade will be calculated based on the grades earned in the new course. The schedule change form will be placed in the student’s cumulative record.

      6. Students may enroll in a digital education course, with approval, after the posted withdrawal deadline if they are able to complete the course requirements by the course end date or school year, whichever is earlier.

    4. X (Late enrollment) Code

      X codes will be issued when a student enrolls in a course too late for credit to be granted.

      1. When a student withdraws from a course after the designated date for withdrawal and transfers to a different course (rather than another level of the same course), an X code will be assigned in the new course for marking periods prior to and including the marking period in which the transfer occurred. An X code will also be assigned for the final grade on the report card and the transcript and no credit will be awarded.

      2. When a student transfers into the HCPSS more than 14 school days after the start of the course and before the second or fourth marking period begins, and enrolls in a course in which they were not enrolled in the previous school, X is assigned for all marking periods prior to and including the marking period in which the student transfers. An exception may be made as outlined in Section II.G.2. below.

  7. Students Transferring into the HCPSS or into Alternative Education Placement

    1. When a student transfers into the HCPSS from a system that does not use mid-term assessments, the code N/A will be entered and the final course grade will be calculated based on the remaining marking period grades and final assessment.

    2. If a student transfers into the HCPSS (more than 14 school days after the start of the course and before the second or fourth marking period begins) and enrolls in a course in which they were not enrolled in the previous school, the principal or their designee may take extenuating circumstances into consideration when determining whether a code of X or N/A should be used. Make-up work for the purposes of gaining critical content may be given and averaged into grades at the discretion of the teacher. Students may also be enrolled in non-traditional courses to supplement work to be included in quarter, assessment, or final grades.

    3. The grades for comparable courses for students who have transferred from another school will be averaged into the final grade.

    4. Religion courses and final grades in those courses from parochial schools not satisfying Section II.G.3. above will be reflected on the transcript but will not be awarded credit.

    5. Credit transfers for students assigned to alternative education placements will be reviewed by the Gateway Student Support Team (GSST) or Central Education Placement Team (CEPT) and approved by the principal.

  8. Middle School Academic Intervention, Promotion, Retention and Accelerated Grade Placement

    1. Academic Intervention

      1. When a middle school student performs below grade/curriculum expectations, the school team, including the teacher, will, with the knowledge and appropriate participation of parents, provide additional assistance and opportunities for the student to improve their performance. Interventions may include the following:

        1. A conference with the student

        2. Differentiated instruction delivered within the regular classroom/school day

        3. A change in class/subject placement

        4. The involvement of a multidisciplinary student support team (including IEP team for special education students)

        5. The involvement of support staff

        6. Participation in supplemental academic activities (e.g., before/after school tutorials, mentoring)

        7. Enrollment in summer school

      2. In addition, for students who perform below grade level in reading and/or mathematics, the school team will develop a plan to improve and monitor achievement.

      3. Grade level teams will review and modify student plans with the appropriate grade level teams for the following year.

    2. Consideration for Promotion – Middle School Students

      1. The principal may, upon the recommendation of a school/grade team, promote a student who achieves at or above grade/curriculum expectations towards curriculum standards in English, mathematics, science, and social studies as measured by teacher-made or selected assessments and by teacher observations.

      2. A student receiving special education will be assessed based on the provisions of their Individualized Education Program (IEP)

      3. After consideration of all factors, including parent input, the principal will decide if promotion is appropriate. Parents may appeal a decision to promote to the Community Superintendent.

    3. Consideration for Retention

      1. With input from the appropriate school/grade team, the principal will consider a student for retention when a student fails to meet standards appropriate for the grade level. The principal may also consider for retention a student who is recommended by a school/grade team or parent for other reasons. The principal must consider whether the needs of the student are best met through retention and offer the parent an opportunity to be included in the decision-making process.

      2. The principal will make a decision based on a number of factors, which may include, but are not limited to the following:

        1. Academic achievement level

        2. Demonstrated progress in response to academic interventions

        3. Age of the student

        4. Previous retention(s)

        5. Attendance record

        6. Parental concerns

        7. Developmental factors

        8. Health factors

        9. Emotional factors

        10. Report Card

        11. IEP

        12. 504 Plan (see Policy 9060 - Rehabilitation Act of 1973 Compliance: Section 504)

      3. The IEP team will consider retention of a diploma-bound student with an Individualized Education Program (IEP).

      4. The provisions of this policy do not apply to a certificate-bound student with an Individualized Education Program (IEP).

      5. Any student who is not passing in reading and/or mathematics at the end of 8th grade (as shown on the student’s report card) will be required to participate in appropriate interventions, based on academic need as determined by the middle school principal. Interventions may include summer school, evening school, and other non-traditional course options and/or designated reading and/or mathematics intervention courses in 9th grade.

      6. Parents may appeal a decision to retain to the Community Superintendent.

      7. If a student is retained in the current grade, the instructional team for that grade must review any academic interventions provided the student during the current academic year and make revisions designed to accelerate the student’s pace of learning for the following year.

    4. Consideration for Accelerated Grade Placement

      1. A principal may, upon the recommendation of a school/grade team or parent, consider accelerating a student to an advanced grade when they consistently demonstrate the ability to achieve at a higher level than expected in the essential curriculum as measured by quarterly, teacher made and other assessments, and by teacher observations.

      2. The principal will decide whether to move the student to an advanced grade based on a number of factors, which may include, but are not limited to the following:

        1. Academic achievement level

        2. Age of the student

        3. Previous accelerations

        4. Attendance record

        5. Parental concerns

        6. Developmental factors

        7. Health factors

        8. Emotional factors

        9. Report card

        10. IEP

        11. 504 Plan (see Policy 9060 - Rehabilitation Act of 1973 Compliance: Section 504)

      3. Students will not be accelerated to advanced grades against the wishes of their parent/guardian.

  9. High School Promotions

    1. To be promoted to grade 10, students must have five credits including one English credit and one year of high school attendance.

    2. To be promoted to grade 11, students must have ten credits including two English credits and two years of high school attendance.

    3. To be promoted to grade 12, students must have fourteen credits including two English credits and three years of high school attendance.

    4. Promotion of students will be considered and updated by high schools at the end of the first semester, the end of the school year and after summer school to account for completion of non-traditional coursework.

  10. GPA

    1. Courses carrying a designation of gifted and talented (GT), advanced placement (AP), and honors (H) will contribute to weighted GPA. Weighted courses will be indicated in the Catalog of Approved High School Courses. For transfer students, HCPSS will weight grades of courses designated GT, AP, and H taken outside HCPSS if the same courses are offered in the Catalog of Approved High School Courses. Students taking a dual enrollment course in a post-secondary institution for dual credit will receive the weighting for the highest possible equivalent offered by HCPSS. GT and H designation are not available for some non-traditional courses.

    2. Students must earn a grade of A, B, or C in a GT or AP course in order to earn the weighted designation of 1.0 additional quality point per credit. Students must earn a grade of A, B, or C in an H course in order to earn the weighted designation of .5 additional quality point per credit. The following chart summarizes quality points for weighted GPA purposes:

      AP and G/T Honors Regular

      A

      5.0

      4.5

      4.0

      1.0

      1.0

      E

      0

      0

      0

    3. Both an unweighted and weighted GPA are computed for each marking period, and cumulatively at the end of each year using the chart in Section II.J.2. Both an unweighted and weighted cumulative GPA will be on final report cards at the end of each school year.

    4. Both an unweighted and weighted cumulative GPA will be calculated by the first week of October of the senior year and will be based on credits earned in grades nine through eleven.

    5. At graduation, an unweighted and weighted cumulative GPA will be calculated based on credits earned in grades nine through twelve.

    6. GPAs from both the first week of October and the end of the senior year will appear on the final high school transcript.

    7. Weighted GPA will be used for academic eligibility for extracurricular activities, National Honor Society, honor roll, and for any other activity requiring the reporting of a grade point average.

  11. High School Courses Taken in Middle School

    1. Any high school course listed in the Middle School Course Catalog which is offered at the middle school is eligible for high school credit and will be treated as an equivalent.

    2. Beginning with courses completed in the 2015-2016 school year, the student’s course grade will be recorded on the high school transcript.

    3. The student’s grade will not be calculated into the high school grade point average.

    4. If a student re-takes one of the high-school courses taken in middle school for which credit was earned:

      1. The high school grade(s) will be calculated into the GPA, and

      2. Only the first credit will be awarded.

    5. If a student is receiving a full year of high school world language content within one middle school year, one high school credit will be awarded at the completion of that year. If a student is receiving the course content over two or three years, the high school credit will be awarded upon completion of the final year.

    6. If a student earns a credit in middle school with a weight associated in the course and retakes the course in high school in a course that does not have a weight associated, the course taken in high school will not receive a weighted grade.

  12. Non-traditional Courses

    Non-traditional courses include, but are not limited to, digital education, credit recovery, or high school credit-bearing courses taught during summer or after regular school hours, or dual enrollment courses taught at a higher education institution. Courses eligible for dual enrollment credit taught in a high school building during the traditional school day may also be considered non-traditional and have a weighting structure that aligns with the institute of higher education partner’s accreditation standards.

    1. All non-traditional courses have teacher-facilitated instruction that meets the standards of the HCPSS curriculum.

    2. All non-traditional courses have a defined period for completion that may vary from the traditional academic calendar.

    3. For non-traditional courses taken outside of the regular school day, the attendance policy may be modified.

  13. Summer School

    1. Summer School is a continuation of the school year preceding enrollment in the course.

    2. Students may enroll in an Innovative Pathways Summer School (formerly Comprehensive Summer School) course up until the third day of the course.

    3. For non-traditional courses taken outside of the regular school day, the attendance policy may be modified.

    4. Students who retake a course through summer school may be able to gain eligibility for fall extracurricular activities. The grade earned in summer school does not replace the recorded grade for the fourth quarter of a student’s report card or transcript. The final grade earned in the summer school class will be calculated in place of the student’s fourth quarter grade in the course only for the purpose of meeting eligibility requirements.

  14. Credit Recovery

    1. Schools may enroll students in on-site credit recovery programs within the first 20 school days of the academic year. Transfer students may enroll in credit recovery courses.

    2. Students may enroll in credit recovery, including the Innovative Pathways Evening Program (formerly Evening School).

III. Reporting

  1. Teachers will grade, post, and return student work within three weeks of the due date, barring unusual circumstances and include written feedback when possible and appropriate.

    2. Teachers should also notify parents of unsatisfactory progress throughout the marking period.

    3. Assignments or assessments that are unable to be sent home due to question security or copyright may be reviewed at school by students or parents, but may not be sent home.

  2. Non-traditional Reporting

    1. Credit recovery course credit may be awarded for the completion of a course where the student was previously enrolled but did not earn credit (See Policy 8200 Digital Education).

    2. Non-traditional courses including but not limited to summer school, digital education, evening school and credit recovery course grades will be reflected on the high school transcript and calculated in the cumulative GPA.

    3. For non-traditional courses where the student was previously enrolled but did not earn credit, both the original course grade and the non-traditional course grade will be included in the GPA and recorded on the high school transcript.

    4. For non-traditional courses taught outside the traditional school day, marking period grades may be earned by semester. Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 will reflect the Semester 1 grade, and Quarter 3 and Quarter 4 will reflect the Semester 2 grade. An N/A code may be used Quarter 1 or Quarter 3 if applicable, which will be updated to reflect the Semester 1 grade at the end of Quarter 2 or Quarter 4. This grade change will not affect student’s athletic eligibility for Quarter 1 or 3. If timing prohibits the entry of an exam grade, an N/A can be used and changed.
