Assessment in the secondary cycle


For assessment purposes teachers shall use a marking scale of 0
to 10. Equivalences between the various marks on the scale and the pupil’s
performance are set out in the table below.

The performance meets the requirements of the subject and the
question particularly adequately. The mark 10 does not mean
that the performance is flawless but it does denote a
performance which is outstanding in all respects.
9 - 10
The performance fully meets the requirements of the subject
and the question.
8 - 8.9
The performance generally meets the requirements of the
subject and the question.
7 - 7.9
The performance does show weaknesses but still meets the
requirements of the subject and the question on the whole.
6 - 6.9
The performance does not meet the requirements of the subject
and the question but shows that the necessary basic knowledge exists and that the weaknesses can be remedied in the
foreseeable future.
4 - 5.9
 The performance does not meet the requirements of the subject
and the question, the basic knowledge being so sketchy that
the weaknesses can be remedied only in the comparatively
distant future.
2 - 3.9
The performance does not meet the requirements of the subject
and the question, the basic knowledge being so sketchy that
the weaknesses cannot be remedied in the foreseeable future.
0.1 - 1.9
This assessment will be given in the event of a blank or
unacceptable script, of the absence of an answer or of a
practical project or of cheating.
