Discussion: Putting a meaning to the number (Graduate Evals)

Posted Jan. 7, 2022, 3:30 a.m. by Captain J Ridgley (Commandant) (J Ridgley)

Hello, one and all!

So this month will be one full of discussion and I am completely open to criticism and rebuke. This is to simply achieve a clear picture and betterment of the Academy process. With that said, in the background, I have been in discussion with how we grade the cadet Evals at the end of their term. As such I noticed a few differences between grading and recommendations for Cadets in regards to their role and their grade, subjective was the word that came to mind. So I have put together a very draft based idea of a ‘meaning to the number’ so that 1-We have a clear understanding of what a score means to the Cadet and 2 for me most importantly we are then able to go back to the Cadet with work on points and coach them into being a better writer.

This scoring system has been adapted from my own personal experience working in a military training establishment.

So here it is, (We already grade in the following subjects if you wasn’t aware and is typically out of 35.)

(Only a recommendation, this is by no means resolute.)
28-35 = DH
19-27 = Main
11-18 = Main (At-Risk could require a mentor)
0 - 10 = Improvement Required
