    It varies by the school and district. Does your school give letter grades to the second graders?

    My school gives Letter grades and numerical grades to students. We used open-ended questions, multiple choice, true/false, etc and used an appropriate technique (10pts each, 5 pts each) to find their grades. It really depends on your school!

    My kids don't get any grades. I circle their papers with corrections, or I give them a star.

    They have to correct anything that's circled, and then I add a K to the circle, so it spells OK :)

    I do have them fill out reflections and I respond for bigger projects (things that have a final draft or presentation) It's simple and just has them circle some responses about how they feel about it.

    For the parents, we do a narrative and mark them on a developmental rubric.

    At my old district, we give a % and state standard grade. I graded off of tests for % grades and used quarterly district assessments aka tests for state standard grades.

    We grade a 1-3.
    1= does not meet gr 2 curr expectations (about 0-60% correct)
    2= developing and showing an understanding (about 60-95%). A 2 should be given even with 100% if the child needs to apply lots of effort to obtain an answer.
    3= meets gr 2 curr expectations (undrestands the concept quickly)
    4 = is added only to report cards & only if there are LOADS of 3's

    These are not added to papers.

    On report cards we give an "N" for "Needs More Work;" "P" for "Progressing Adequately;" and "M" for "Mastery." We don't have general subjects like "Math," etc...but rather "I Can" statements that cover our standards & objectives.
