Grading Practices

The DVHS is committed to communicating accurate information to sponsors and students based upon the DoDEA grading policies. The following practices apply to all students enrolled in DVHS courses regardless of eligibility upon which they are enrolled:

  • Official grades are provided through the DoDEA electronic grade book/portal.
  • An informal progress report is available on a weekly basis using the DoDEA electronic gradebook/portal.

Grades populated in any other database including the Learning Management System (LMS) are not official. Individual grades in the LMS:

  • May represent completion of some assignments but,
  • May not reflect a comprehensive list of grades for the course.

The DVHS Program operates worldwide; therefore, calculation of grades for extracurricular activity (i.e. sports, etc.) eligibility within DoDEA is updated no later than each Tuesday at 1600 EST/EDT.

  • DoDEA facilitators will be provided access to DVHS grades for students enrolled in DVHS courses at their local schools.
  • Specific information regarding access is provided in the facilitator forum within the LMS.

For students enrolled from the NDSP and through the Domestic Transition Program, report cards are sent via email to the student and sponsors at the end of each quarter (nine weeks).
