Grade inflation and grade deflation undermine the best of classrooms. Identification of where both are impacting student performance is essential for driving outcomes.
Grades are the primary mode of communicating progress to parents and students. Unfortunately, grades do not always reflect mastery. Discrepancy between grades and mastery create longitudinal issues for schools as students move from course to course.
ACE pinpoints issues between course grades and mastery ensuring parents, students, and educators are all on the same page regarding student progress.
Our grading practices impact everything from student confidence to parent expectations.
Whether it's a non-mastery level elementary student progressing each year with straight 'A's, a deflated middle school student receiving 'D's and 'F's despite benchmarking, or a 3.5 GPA high school student missing the college entrance exam cutoff score, grade inflation and grade deflation have long term ramifications for your schools.
