Understanding Grading and Projects

How can I tell if my child is on track, or on-pace?

As a parent/guardian, you may be interested in identifying how your student is on track, or on-pace. At Dishman Hills High School we use the Summit Learning Platform where students can view their progress across all courses for the entire school year.



The vertical line is the pacing line, and it indicates where a student should be today in order to be on track, or on-pace, to complete a given course by the end of the school year. Projects and focus areas to the left of the line are either completed or behind schedule, while all Projects and focus areas to the right of the line are upcoming in the school year. Students are free to work on focus areas ahead of time or return to previous focus areas for review at any time.

Note: Projects that have been assigned are sized proportionally, depending on the start and end dates of the Projects. For example, a longer Project will take up more space on the Year page than a shorter Project. Projects that are unassigned, as well as all focus areas, are spaced equally and are presented at the same width.
