Participation (including attendance): 10%
Vocabulary Quizzes (5th-8th grades only): 25%
Benchmark Progress (in Rosetta Stone): 30% - factored into their grade before each progress report - This is a cumulative grade throughout the year, so staying within "striking distance" of the weekly goal, is very important!
Rosetta Stone Grade (average % success achieved on all lessons): 20%
Group Activities: 10%
Journal Activities: 5%
Benchmark Progress Configuration:
(% goal goes up every 6 school days)
By May 17th: 3rd-4th graders should be at 40% progress (40% [5 rows] by end of year)
5th-6th graders should be at 60% progress (60% [7 1/2 rows] by end of year)
7th-8th graders should be at 80% progress (80% [10 rows] by end of year)
Their Benchmark Progress grade for the grade book, is figured by dividing the goal (above) INTO the student's current % progress (the blue bar - as seen on their Rosetta report).
***Note: An activity box must have a green check mark in the upper right corner, to count toward progress***
How to find out your student's % progress: 1) Log on to their Rosetta Stone program-details on the "Helps" page
2) Click "My Reports" (under "Launch Rosetta Stone Foundations")
3) Enter "from" date of August 10, 2017; click "OK" at the bottom of the calendar (the "to" date will be today)
4) Click "Create PDF"
5) Click on "Learner Progress" PDF File to open (usually at bottom of screen)
6) Their Benchmark Progress % is the blue bar at the top.
Their Rosetta Stone Grade is the green bar at the top.
7) Note: If your student has worked in more than one level during the above time frame, a separate PDF will need to be created for each level & the progress % added together for their total
Suggestions to Help Make the Best Progress:
- An overview of the Rosetta Stone program can be found on the "About" page (seen at the top).
- Each row of activity blocks (there are 11 blocks in each row), is worth 8% progress. One completed (with a green check mark) activity box is worth approximately .72%.
- Work progressively through each unit, rather than skipping around and doing all the favorite activities first.
- If a certain activity is causing great frustration, skipping forward to the next activity, and then coming back to this one later, is fine.
- If a satisfactory grade is not achieved on an activity, DON'T click "Repeat" or "Restart" as this will erase ALL work done on that activity. Click "Home," then click back on that activity box, and then click "Continue current progress". This allows work to be done on individual lessons (bubbles) within that activity, without repeating the entire thing.
- NOTE: "Reviews" and "Milestones" are pass/fail only. "Continue" is not available on these 2 types of activities. If a Review or Milestone is not passed with a high enough grade, it must be repeated in its entirety. (A "Review" is like a quiz; a "Milestone" is like a unit test).
