Passing thresholds, also referred to as assessment thresholds, are used to determine the minimum score students need to earn on the assessment in order to receive credit and move on in the course work. When the threshold is met or exceeded, the score is counted towards the overall grade for the student’s course and the student can progress without teacher intervention. The thresholds are set to 70% by default. Educators can adjust these thresholds however they see fit.
