Grades and Grading – Frequently Asked Questions http://www.dcgschools.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=418&catid=34&Itemid=739 http://www.dcgschools.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=418&catid=34&Itemid=739 What is the purpose of grades? To communicate the learning to others. Grades must be:

  •  Accurate – The grade must reflect the academic performance of the student when the summative grade is given. Behaviors such as attitude, effort, late work, etc. should not affect the academic grade. DCG is considering a separate behavior or ‘employability’ grade to address this need.
  • Fair – The grade must not be influenced by factors unrelated to academic performance, such as gender, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, etc.
