Are letter grades given? What are they? How are they determined?
Agora Cyber Charter School is a mastery-based program, which means students master concepts and lessons before moving on to the next lesson. Students submit assignments to their teachers for evaluation and feedback.
For kindergarten through grade 5, we use standards-based grading. Each quarter, students receive a standards-based report card that shows the parent/learning coach how the student is performing based on grade-level standards.
For grades 6 through 12, we use quantitative grading on a 0–100% grading scale. Teachers assess mastery and provide quantitative feedback.
