Grade may refer to:
- Grade level, the numbering of the year a student has reached in school. In Education, a grade (or mark is a teacher's standardized Evaluation of a Student 's work Educational stages vary around the world Some countries describe the different stages in years whereas other countries use a system of grades
In civil engineering
- Grade (slope), the pitch of a slope such as a hill, road or railway
- Grading, the preparation and levelling of land for construction, especially of roads and railways
- Grade separation, aligning a junction of two or more transport axes at different heights to facilitate traffic flow. The grade (or gradient or pitch or slope) of any physical feature such as a Hill, Stream, Roof, railroad, or Grading in civil engineering and construction is the work of ensuring a level (or possibly sloped to specific degree base for a construction work such as a foundation or the Grade separation is the process of aligning a junction of two or more transport axes at different heights (

- Grade (bouldering), a climber's assessment of the difficulty and danger of climbing a route which are distinct from those used in regular climbing
- Grade (rivers), a standardized scale used to rate the safety of a stretch of river, or a single rapid. In Mathematics, a graded vector space is a type of Vector space that includes the extra structure of gradation, meaning that it can be composed into the In Mathematics, in particular Abstract algebra, a graded algebra is an Algebra over a field (or Commutative ring) with an extra piece of structure The grad is a unit of plane Angle, equivalent to of a full Circle, dividing a Right angle in 100 Ore grade is a measure that describes the concentration of a valuable natural material (such as Metals or Minerals) in its surrounding Ore. Theory The clamp load also called preload of a cap screw is created when a torque is applied and is generally a percentage of the cap screw's proof strength Cetane number or CN is a measurement of the Combustion quality of Diesel fuel during compression ignition The octane rating is a measure of the resistance of Gasoline and other Fuels to Detonation ( Engine knocking) in spark-ignition In Pathology, grading is a measure of the progress of Tumors and other Neoplasms Some pathology grading systems apply only to Malignant neoplasms In Rock climbing, Mountaineering and other Climbing disciplines climbers give a climbing grade to a route that concisely describes the difficulty In the sport of Bouldering, problems are assigned technical grades according to several established systems which are often distinct from those used in roped Climbing The International Scale of River Difficulty is a standardized scale used to rate the safety of a stretch of river or a single Rapid. RAPID is an acronym for Rural Address Property IDentification a scheme instituted in New Zealand to assist emergency services in identifying and locating rural properties
