Grading System<br />Under the Philippine education system, schools have the inherent power to impose the standards of scholastic achievement for the student and to eliminate any one who fails to meet the desired norm.<br />Standards of scholastic achievement, as set by school rules, policies and regulations, make it a duty upon every student to exert his utmost in his education in every way possible. <br />There are four periodical ratings in one school year.<br />The averaging system is used in computing final grades.<br />92% is the highest grade given and the lowest is 70% after its equivalent is taken from the transmutation table. This is used in the English department only.<br />Pre-elementary and Elementary level of performance is 65% while High School is 70% which is equivalent to a grade of 75.<br />The report card grade is made up of the daily work grade (quizzes, recitation, homework, project) which count as 60% and Periodical examinations which count as 40%.<br />To arrive at the grade for a subject, the score equivalent as reflected in the transmutation table is taken. Its corresponding standard weight 60% class standing (40% quizzes, 10% seatwork, 5% homework/project, 5% recitation) and 40% periodical test are computed. Weights for every item are added to produce the grade for the subject.<br />10% deduction from the score of the Periodical Examination taken after the regular schedule.<br />C.
