Grading Policy

Each course assesses on common district criteria aligned to state standards. Core teachers will grade all summative assessments with rubrics. In all courses, the higher the rubric score on a summative assessment, the better the student’s demonstration of knowledge. At the end of the semester and year, core teachers will issue a final trend mark for each criterion. Core teachers will determine the final trend mark by the knowledge the student demonstrates throughout the semester and year in each criterion. Core teachers will consider summative assessments, formative assessments, observations, and student circumstances when giving a final trend mark.

Missing assignments for a student that has not completed any work, has not turned in a project, or has not attempted an assessment will become part of the overall demonstration of knowledge that core teachers will consider for a final trend mark. Every student has the right to take a summative assessment once. However, re-takes/re-dos will not be permitted until all classwork has been completed and a study session attended. Core teachers will evaluate exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Students who complete 95% of classwork will be allowed to re-take/re-do assessments provided that the student attends a help/study session with the teacher. The study session requirements will be an agreement between the teacher and the student. Re-takes/re-dos of assessments must be completed by the end of the next unit. In addition, all make-up work must be completed by the end of the next unit. Students will always receive the highest grade they achieve on a test regardless of the number of times attempted.


Northglenn Middle School communicates student achievement levels based upon the standards. We do not assign letter grades, rather proficiency levels will be reported out as follows:

  • 4 – Exceeds Standard
  • 3 – Meets Standard
  • 2 – Approaching Standard
  • 1 – Below Standard

Study Sessions/Office Hours

Each core teacher offers weekly study sessions.  This is time for one on one help, extra support doing work, making up classwork, finishing assessments and supporting various aspects of each class.  In most cases, this will be a voluntary situation. There may be times when the core teacher requires attendance.  Students are encouraged to speak with their teachers if they would like to set an appointment for help.
