How will grades be calculated? Will it be mode, average, or something else?

Something else. We have reviewed several options and received feedback from several groups, but the reality is that in a standards-based system, if the student demonstrates proficiency, then they have met the learning target and/or standard. Students must “meet” every learning target for each power standard in order to meet the power standard (two reliable measures for each learning target, 3 to 5 LTs per standard). Subsequently, students must meet 70% of the power standards for the subject area in order to pass. The grading scale starts there for both elementary and secondary.
