**Grading for all courses except math courses**

Grades for all courses except math courses are calculated as follows:

**70%**: Cognitive skills through projects- Students must complete all projects to pass a course
**30%**: Mastery of content in focus areas through content assessments**21%**: Power focus areas- Note: Students must pass all content assessments for power focus areas to pass a course
- For non-AP courses, students must answer 8/10 assessment questions correctly to pass
- For AP courses, students must answer 7/10 assessment questions correctly to pass
**9%**: Additional focus areas

**Potential reasons for incomplete grades**

Students may have incomplete grades in any of the following cases:

- Students may not have completed all projects in a course
- Students have cognitive skill averages below 70%
- Students have math concept unit scores below 70%
- Students are off pace, or off track, on power focus areas

Keep in mind that students can change incomplete grads into letter grades by completing any overdue projects and improving their cognitive skill scores.
