Standards-Based Courses

By 2021 all AASD secondary courses will utilize a standards-based instruction and assessment model that involves using rubrics to measure student proficiency on well-defined course standards.

Standards will be grouped together and these clusters will be analyzed and will continue to be converted to traditional letter grades. This grade will appear in Infinite Campus at the end of each reporting period.
