NPSI Town Hall Series: Grading in the Age of COVID-19

May 21, 2020 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CST

The National Postsecondary Strategy Institute (NPSI) hosted a webinar on May 21st, 2020. Grading in the Age of COVID-19. How modifications of high school grading policies are impacting higher education admission and enrollment procedures.

The class of 2020 continues to adapt, plan and respond to new challenges created by “sheltering in place”, especially with respect to end of course grading decisions. Districts have rolled out new grading policies that include both pass/fail and traditional grading options. Students must now consider how colleges will view their grading decision with respect to college admission and enrollment.

NPSI is honored to host a panel of high school counselors and college admission officers as they share perspectives, strategies and ideas regarding how high school grading modifications are impacting higher education enrollment decisions.
