Secondary Grading at P.K. Yonge
As a developmental research school, we are charged with designing, testing, and disseminating innovations in K-12 education through serving our diverse student community.
Over the past few years, through teacher research, development, and formalized inquiry (see Teacher Inquiry), work has been taking place around our campus on grading systems – specifically analyzing the merits and challenges presented by different grading systems and scales.
Based on outcomes from this work, we took concrete steps during the 2019-20 school year to move from a 100-point scale to a 4-point scale. For more information: Four-Point Grading
Student performance in courses are graded using a 4-point scale. Final grades continue to be reported as A-F letter grades for all courses.
In the scale below, you will see the ranges for both the 4-point and the 100-point scale.
As a developmental research school, we question existing practices in K-12 education, engage in research, and apply our learning for the benefit of students at P.K. Yonge and throughout the State of Florida.
