    Standard - based grades translated into letter grades for report cards
     
    When I assess students' performances towards our learning goals, I use a 1 to 4 scale.   When I enter students' grades on Aspen for report cards, I use the middle school scale of A+ to F
     
    For the last two years that I have been using the 1 to 4 scale, grades rarely went below C because of the policy of re-takes during WIN block.

     3.8 - 3.9 - 4                 Performance exceeds the learning goal  A+
     3.7 - 3.6                      Performance meets the goal 100% of the time  A
     3.5 - 3.4                       Performance meets the goal 80% to 90%  A-
     3.3 - 3.2 -                      Performance meets the goal 75% to 80%  B+
     2.9 - 3 - 3.1 -         Performance shows evidence of approaching the                                    goal but not meeting it. Goal met 70% to 60%   B
     2.6 -  2.7  -  2.8     Performance shows evidence of approaching the                                    goal but not meeting it. Goal met 50%  B-
     2.5 2.4 - 2.3                  Performance shows little evidence of approaching                                  the goal  C+
