We have 12 grading terms in our year. Some of these terms are called Progress Report terms (PR) , some are called Nine Weeks Cycles/Averages/Terms (C). Skyward calls them Terms or Cycles. Parents are used to them being called averages.
|Long Form||Example||Time Covered||Notes|
|PR||Progress Report Term||PR4 - Progress Report 4||3 weeks||There are 8 Progress Report terms
in a school year.
|C||Cycle||C2 - Cycle 2 or 2nd 9 weeks||9 weeks||There are 4 Cycles in a school year.|
|S||Semester||S1 - Semester one Average||18 weeks||There are 2 Semesters in a school year.|
|FA3||Final Year Average||FA3 - Final Average||36 weeks|| S1 (Semester 1) and S2 (Semester 2)
are added together and divided by two
In our School Year, we have 8 Progress Reporting Terms (PR) that each represent three weeks of grades. We have 4 Cycles or Terms called Nine Weeks Averages = (C1, C2, C3, C4). As part of or the result of some of these terms put together, we have 2 Semesters that Represent averages of these terms = S1 and S2; and then we have a Final Average (FA3) for each course students take at the end of the year. Each year long course is divided into two semesters. PR's just show work in progress for the students that lead to their Nine Weeks Average. See below:
At the end of the year, S1 (Semester 1) and S2 (Semester 2) are added together and divided by two to get a Final Year Average for each of the Year Long classes that students take = FA3
