Cognitive Skills scores make up 70% of a student’s grade in non-math courses, while Cognitive Skills scores make up 30% of a student’s grade in math courses.

For example, if a Cognitive Skill is assessed 3 times in a course across different Projects, then the score will count in a student’s grade 3 times. Only the highest score a student receives for each cognitive skill in a course will count in a student’s grade.
Students can receive a score between 1-8 on each Cognitive Skill, where 8 is considered pre-professional. The Cognitive Skills score is then mapped to a percentage grade based on this rubric, which is determined by grade level:
