The K to 12 Basic Education Program uses a standard and competency-based grading system. All grades are based on the weighted raw score of the learner’s summative assessments. The minimum grade needed to pass a specific learning area is 60, which is transmuted to 75 in the report card. The lowest mark that can appear on the report card is 60 for Midterm Grades and Final Grades.
For these guidelines, the SHS uses a floor grade considered as the lowest possible grade that will appear in a learner’s report card.
Learners from Grades 11 to 12 are graded on Written Work, Performance Tasks, and Quarterly Assessment every quarter. These three are given specific percentage weights that vary according to the nature of the learning area.
