    (Answer this discussion question by typing in the "Reply to This" box at the bottom of this Forum.)

    When a student gets an A, or a B, or a C, or a D, or an F as a final grade on a report card or on a transcript, what does that mean?  And what should go into that grade - what should it be comprised of so that it means what you want it to mean?

A student's grade should represent the level of mastery/competency achieved.

a grade should reflect what a kid should know and be able to do

A grade should reflect mastery. The grade is fluid not fixed. It's about learning not gotchas. 

Grading should represent the learning and growth. 

A grade should truly reflect where students are in mastery of content.

A grade should represent students' mastery of standards.
Mastery of the material with an opportunity to improve with perseverance.

The grade should represent mastery of the learning.

Grade should reflect mastery of content. Should not be defined by time. If they learn the content by the end of the course, this should be reflected in grading.
