Assessments and Grading Criteria
Overbrook Academy has two semesters (Fall and Spring) that are divided into quarterly ranking periods. Progress reports and report cards are issued quarterly.
Annual students are required to complete a digital portfolio (collection of student works) that demonstrates proficiency in and mastery of standards in each of the subject areas.
Students must have a passing grade (65) in each of their classes in order to successfully complete the program of study. Grades are numerical.
The grading system is as follows:
94-90: Very Good
74-70: Below Average
Students who maintain a grade point average of 95, with no grades lower than a 90 will be on honor roll. Honor roll is determined at the close of each quarter.
Students who are under-performing or failing are placed into Academic Tracking. Students who are academically tracked are offered support services and appropriate interventions.
TOEFL Junior is administered two times per year (September and May). This is used as a pre and post test to determine student progress within the program.
Renaissance Star Testing is administered to students quarterly in Reading (English) and Math. The first test is administered at the beginning of school to help form Individual Learning Plans. Subsequent tests are used to monitor student progress.
