Grading in a flipped mastery classroom is totally different than grading in a traditional classroom.
Flipped mastery is broken into two categories: Mastery Checks and Tests. Your grade is based on your ability to demonstrate mastery. Your teacher may count Mastery Checks as 50% and Unit Tests as 50% (check with them to be sure). You must score at least a 70% on the unit test to progress. You must get at least 80% on each section mastery check to progress. Your teacher may count Back-to-Basics as another small category, so MC = 45%, Test = 45%, B2B = 10%.
As long as you stay on the minimum pace or ahead, you are guaranteed an A, B, or C. If you fall behind the minimum pace, a missing (which counts as a zero) will be put into the gradebook for each mastery check you fall behind on. If you do not take a test on the minimum date, a missing will be put into the gradebook for a unit test ensuring a bad grade. If you are worried about grade checks for sports or your parents, do not fall behind pace! As soon as you finish a mastery check or unit test, we will input the score into the gradebook.
Grades are constantly changing!!! It is very possible to go from an F to A in one class and vice versa. If you do not finish the material required for one quarter you will not move on to the next quarter. So if Q1 ends with section 4.3 and you are section 3.5 then you will have zeros for all missing sections. Q2 will start but you will still be on section 3.5. As soon as you finish Q1 material and your grade is an A, B, or C, your teacher will change the grade in gradespeed. However, your Q2 grade will be a 0% until you catch up. This is also true for Semester grades. In flipped mastery learning students will pass every section and every test, it is just a matter of doing it early, on time, or late. A course may take some students 1.5 years and other student three-fourths of a year. We are constantly changing grades to reflect your real time performance.
