Leaving Cert 2020 :Calculated Grade Student Portal will open tomorrow
The Leaving Cert has had to change this year.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the closures of schools across the country, Sixth Year students were unable to take the Leaving Certificate examination this year.
A Calculated Grading system has been set up in its place whereby Calculated Grades will be generated using a systematic statistical model.
It will combine estimates of a student’s expected performance in a subject and level, with information about how students in this school have fared in this subject in recent years in line with national performance standards over time.
Students who do not want to be assessed in this way will have the option of sitting the Leaving Cert next year instead.
For those who have chosen to use the Calculated Grading system the Calculated Grade Student Portal will open tomorrow morning ,Tuesday 26, at 9am.
Students will need to complete the registration process AND confirm their subject levels.
According to Gov.ie;
The first source of data will be provided by the subject teacher. It will then be aligned in the school, with teachers reflecting on and considering the marks to ensure that the process is correctly applied.
The principal then reviews to assure that the process was correctly applied and that all students were treated fairly. The school then sends the data to the Department of Education and Skills.
More information on Leaving Cert 2020 is available from Gov.ie but if you can not find the information you require contact your child's school.
