    we are 4 days from the end of the 3rd grading period. I have student whose grade in my gradebook right now is a 5. two others with a 16 and 18. Of course there are many missing assignments from these gentlemen as well as several incredibly poor test?HW scores. Do you report the grades in your gradebook on their report card or do something different? Please explain - thanks.

    I report the letter grade, not the percentage. So if a student had a 5 or a 50, it would still be an F on the report card.

    Same here--only the letter grades go on the report cards. Parents can always see the actual percentage on PowerSchool, though.

    In my district, we put letter grades on report cards. Parents can look up actual percentages online if they want.

    alas, my district requires us to enter %. In the first half, I did put actual % (had some 30's and 40's) but have never had 5's and 16's. However, the missing assignments in the gradebook tell the story for these students.

    I'm not sure about your district, but all Fs in my district round up to a 50% if they are low. So a 30% and a 5% would both become a 50%, while a 52% would stay at a 52%.

    Our district reports the letter grade. If a student earns a poor grade, teachers are supposed to insert a comment or two (or more) to explain.

    I have both on mine. But at anytime, the parents can look it up online.

    We can only report numbers, not letters. However, at the first 9 weeks we are supposed to round up grades to a minimum of a 60.

    A former student of mine has a 2 in one class. I caught a lot of flack for "giving" him a 65 last year. Apparently it was MY fault he was failing then. Wonder whose fault it is now??? @@
