**Planning Diagnostics**give students questions of different difficulties to quickly estimate their proficiency in different learning pathways. The results of planning diagnostics place students in one of four proficiency levels for each pathway assessed (Struggling, Beginning, Approaching, and Proficient).

**Unit Diagnostics, Quizzes**and

**Growth Quizzes**are scored using the traditional percentage of questions answered correctly. While we provide remediation and an infinite number of attempts on each question, quizzes only count a question as

*correct*if it is answered correctly on the first try.

**Practices**are graded based on the percentage of assigned topics that your students

*mastered*. On a single topic, the student's mastery score suggests his or her progress toward proven understanding of that concept. A score of 88, for example, does not mean that a student has answered 88% of questions correctly; rather, it means that a student is 88% of the way toward achieving mastery in that topic.
