The Irish are in the process of setting their new national school ratings system.
The system is set to be unveiled this week and the results will be announced at the end of the week.
Here’s a look at some of the key points:What’s the system?
Ireland’s schools are split into four different categories, including academies, junior academies and high schools.
Each category has a number of points that are awarded based on the number of students who go to those schools.
The higher the number, the better the score.
For example, a category of 7, 7.5 or 7.9 is considered a 5, whereas a category with 7.2 is considered 8, 7 or 7 and so on.
A 7.0 is considered the worst of the worst and has a scoring of 3.0.
The highest score in that category is a 9.0, and so is awarded the number 9.1.
The Irish also have an official system of academic achievement that is based on a five-year system, which is awarded to schools based on how many pupils graduate from their school and earn a degree.
Irish universities are also based on their ability to produce a minimum number of first-class students, a criteria which is assessed by the number the students are expected to graduate from.
A 5.0 or 5.5 is considered to be a top-class school, while a 5.2 or 5, 4.8 or 4.7 is considered average and a 5 is considered good.
An 11.0 score is considered perfect, and a score of 11.5 means that the school is excellent, while an 11.8 score is a great school, and therefore, a great student.
An average score of 9.9 or 9.5, with a 5 and above, means the school has excellent academic performance.
A grade of 9 or 10, with an average score above 10, means that a school is good, while 10.0 means that it is excellent.
An 8.5 score means that one of the students will graduate from the school with a degree, while 9.8 means that he will not.
An excellent score of 10 or 11 means that two of the children will graduate with a bachelor’s degree, with no degree required.
The grading scale used to rate schoolsIn order to get a school rating, students have to complete a 10-minute test in which they must answer the questions with a minimum of 10 correct responses.
There are two tests in this category, one to measure academic performance and another to measure learning.
Students are graded according to their scores, with 10 being a “good” grade, 11 being “excellent” and 12 being “perfect”.
There are four ways to get an average grade:An average of 10.8 is considered “good”, while an average of 9, 8.0 and 8.9 are all considered “exemplary”.
An average 9.6 or 9, 5.9 and 4.6 is considered excellent, and an average 7, 5 and 4 is considered bad.
An exceptional grade of 8 or 9 is a top school, but a grade of 7.7 or 7, 8 and 7 are all good.
A 12 is considered an excellent school, a 12.5 to 8.6, with 8.7 being a good grade and 9 being average.
An 18 is considered exceptional, with grades of 16 and 17 being outstanding.
Irish school rankings from 2018Teachers and administrators were also asked to rank their own schools and provide feedback on the way they do their jobs, including their grading system.
Irish students are allowed to choose the school they want to attend but the system will be subject to public scrutiny and will be reviewed by a professional review panel before being introduced.
The system was launched in October 2018, but the Government has yet to decide whether or not it will be introduced next year.
