BSD Family Grading Survey

Purpose of Grades

Thank you for participating in this anonymous, seven-minute survey on grading. In the upper right corner of this page, click the arrow beside the word "English" to take the survey in Amharic, Arabic, Spanish, Korean, Russian, Vietnamese, or Simplified Chinese. When responding, think about your family's overall experience with grades and grading in Bellevue School District (BSD). Your input will help guide district work around grading practices.

The goal of this survey is to gather input from BSD families on two district statements: "Purpose of Grades" and "Beliefs about Grades and Grading". These statements came from
the work of the district's Grading Advisory Team in 2020-21. While the focus is on grades 6-12, we invite all families (elementary, middle, high) to complete the survey. 

Questions or concerns? Please email Anna Van Windekens (BSD Research Scientist) at vanwindekensa@bsd405.org.
