Standards Based Grading

In 2018-19, St. Margaret of Scotland began using Standards-Based Grading (SBG). SBG is an innovation in education that focuses on learning and helps increase achievement. It is often combined with updated instructional practices and culture to better engage students and foster a positive environment.

To better understand Standards-Based Grading, please review the St. Margaret of Scotland’s Parent Guide to Standards Based Grading. This document was written to help SMOS parents understand what each performance descriptor means, answer frequently asked questions, and to familiarize themselves with standards based grading.
