Tween's Grade for English.

How can you convert the scores of the tests and exercises you have completed into a good grade?

Below we describe a number of options from which you can choose.

  • You can base a grade on the average score of the unit tests, see export function. To convert a score to a report figure, we recommend a factor of 0.9, so 90% is then rounded to an 8.
  • The unit test is a snapshot, each exercise also yields a score. You can make a combined grade from the tests and the exercises. You can also apply a 'weighting': For example, 75% of the report score comes from the average score of the unit tests and 25% of the report score comes from the average score of the exercises. This requires some skill in Excel.
  • Because students work at their own level, they can all achieve an adequate to good grade (with some exceptions). So a grade says something, but actually the student level + grade says much more. Therefore, state the level on the report. Of course, you can always refer to our level indication and to the page for parents in an explanation.
  • If you want to make it even more 'advanced', include the progress in the grade. After you create a smart goal, you can easily determine whether a student is 'on target'.
  • Do you have a link with ParnasSys? The good scores for each test will then automatically end up in ParnasSys. In ParnasSys there are also options to 'translate' scores into a grade, but for that I refer you to the ParnasSys Helpdesk.


Assessment during the classroom lesson

Of course, a student also 'performs' during the classroom lesson. We advise not to give a 'number' for this, because it is quite difficult to determine the difference between a 7 and an 8.

Pay particular attention to:

  • how the student participates (active/passive)
  • how the student expresses himself/herself in English in accordance with his/her online level.

Link this to an assessment of “Good/adequate/Inadequate”.
