Am I justified in giving a third grade student a grade of 2 (below grade level expectations, making progress) on her report card? The student likes music, but thats about it. She doesn’t practice, and admits this. She doesn’t fool around in class. She can not play any of the song we are doing in the concert in a few weeks. She can play G up to D, but cannot play FED or C. I have GLEs and she is below that. If we are giving students grades to record how much they love music, or to encourage them in music, I really don’t see the point in grades. Sorry, I’m venting a little. Thoughts?
