OPS Field Testing New Grading Scale -

Omaha Public Schools Field Testing New Grading Scale
During the past year and a half, Omaha Public Schools staff have been working to evaluate the grading practices across the district. Under the current grading scale, teachers have expressed concern that some students can achieve “proficient” grade in a course even though they have only completed minimal work in the course. OPS is committed to providing students and families with an accurate representation of students learning. Therefore, OPS will field test an adjusted grading scale throughout the 2016-17 school year. In an effort to determine the effectiveness of the field test grading scale prior to full implementation across the district, OPS is field testing the new scale within a variety of classes and grade levels.

The field test will take place in the following classes:

* 4th grade Math


* Social Studies 7 1-2

* English/Language Arts 8 1-2

* Physical Science 8 1-2

* Modern World History 1 – 2

* English 3 - 4 and Honors English 3 - 4

* Algebra 1 - 2 and Honors Algebra 1 – 2*

* Physical Science 1 - 2 and Honors Physical Science 1 – 2* *includes dual language

Throughout the fall semester, OPS will ask for feedback from teachers, parents and secondary students regarding the field test grading scale. After the fall semester, all feedback will be analyzed. In addition, students in the field test group will have their field test grading scale grades compared to what their grades would have been with the old grading scale to see if it is reflective of their understanding. Lessons learned during field test implementation will inform any needed adjustments prior to full implementation of the new grading scale.
