    Keep In Mind (Review Only): Understanding JumpRope: What do the numbers 1-4 mean? In JumpRope (our new gradebook), as you check on your child's progress in each class, you'll notice a number on a scale of 1-4 next to each mastery skill. Across the school, the scale of 1-4 is used to indicate your child's current level of mastery of a skill. Here's what each number means: 

    4 (Professional) - Your child has exceeded expectations for the skill or habit at this grade level 
    3 (Practitioner) - Your child has demonstrated mastery of the skill or habit
    2 (Apprentice) - Your child is approaching mastery of the skill or habit
    1 (Novice) - Your child is in need of additional practice and/or evidence of mastery of the skill or habit
    “I” (Insufficient) - There is insufficient evidence of your child's mastery of the skill or habit to assess the level of mastery

    Whatever your child's current level of skill mastery may be, he or she will have multiple opportunities throughout this semester to develop. You can review the gradebook with your child and use his or her current levels of mastery to set goals. If your child has a 1 or a 2 in a skill, then he or she should devote time to developing that specific skill. For more information see our grading policy here.
