Grading Guidelines for Grades 6-12

    • There will be no final exams during the 2019-20 school year.
    • Courses designated as Dual Enrollment (DE) will be graded per the ACPS guidelines above for the ACPS transcript.  The college or university grade will be aligned to the latest policy and guidance of that institution. Students will need to confirm with their instructor how the grade will be reflected on the college or university transcript.

Final Grades

    • With the removal of the final exams, each of the four quarters will be weighted equitably in the final grade calculation, or 25% each, for students who receive a Pass (P) for quarter four.  For students receiving a No Grade (NG) for quarter four, each of the first three quarters will be weighted equitably in the final grade calculation, or approximately 33% each.  
    • Due to the unique and challenging circumstances of the 2019-20 school year, particularly in Quarter 4, grades of P during Quarter 4 will factor into the formula as the maximum value possible, 100.
