Grading & Report Cards

Instruction, assessment and grading in Osseo Area Schools is based upon district, state and/or national standards. As a result, it is called “standards-based” across our school district. A “standard” is a specific skill or concept students are expected to learn following instruction. District, state and national standards give us clear learning targets, instructional activities, materials, and assessments. The goal of standards-based grading and reporting is to share what each student knows and is able to do according to the standards.
