As a parent/guardian, you may be interested in the different factors that contribute to your child’s grades on the Summit Learning Platform. Grades show the competencies that students have developed, as well as their growth. At Summit Learning, we want grades to reflect the fact that students will be growing and improving in their abilities throughout the year.
For Math Courses, in addition to developing Content Knowledge through Focus Areas, students complete Math Concept Units to fully develop an understanding of complex mathematical ideas.
Math Units make up 70% of a math course's grade and consist of 2-5 lessons designed to help students understand the Math Concept. These lessons are designed to provide formative feedback for students and don't contribute to grades for the Math Units. At the end of the set of lessons, students will take the End-of-Unit Assessment.
