How does grading in math work?

The math grade has three components: focus areas (30%), cognitive skills (30%), and concepts (40%). Focus areas work the same as they do in other courses: the 30% of the total grade breaks down further into 21% for power focus areas and 9% for additional focus areas. The cognitive skills also work like they do in other courses: teachers score projects on the cognitive skills rubric, and those scores translate to a cognitive skills average, which makes up 30% of the grade. Concepts are unique to math courses: performance tasks are scored on the concept rubric, and those scores translate to a concept average, which makes up 40% of the grade. For all math courses, the concept rubric is ranged from 1-5, where 3=passing and 5=100%.
