Grading Scale Standardized Statewide

Affects 2015-16 Ninth Graders First

Students who begin ninth grade in the fall of 2015 will be graded on a 10-point scale, and their final numerical grades will be listed on their transcript to clearly display performance levels. The State Board of Education approved the change this month at its October meeting at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The 10-point scale will bring uniformity to all high school grading scales in North Carolina and address concerns about student competitiveness with students from other states and how to handle students transferring between school districts while in high school.

High School Grading Scale, 2015-16 ninth graders forward:

90-100 = 4.0

80-89 = 3.0

70-79 = 2.0

60-69 = 1.0

< 59 = 0.0
