Incorporating & Implementing a Meaningful Grading System
This workshop provides a real opportunity to transform your school’s grading system. You’ll learn to evaluate the traditional report card and grading system and find where improvements are needed and how to track and chart student progress accurately, effectively, and fairly.
Assessment Leads to Achievement
There are many styles and methods of assessments. During this workshop, you’ll find out how to determine which style best fits your students’ readiness levels; how to design assessment tools and tasks that provide credible evidence of mastery; how to direct your teaching in response to students’ needs; and how to dispense feedback that can transform student learning.
What’s in a Grade?
Providing fair and accurate grading requires rejecting what most of us have learned about traditional grading practices. We’ll discuss grading strategies that are designed to work with your current curriculum, while allowing for the evolution of your pedagogy. We’ll dissect what a grade really means and explore ways to ensure your grading is both accurate and useful. And we’ll explore how to get the most out of grading scales by applying them in ways that accurately and fairly reflect what your students are learning.
A Meaningful Difference
In this workshop, you’ll learn what makes a meaningful grade, methods for evolving your current classroom practice and curriculum to include regular assessments, and how standards-based grading and assessment lead to a more accurate measurement of student achievement. Plus, you’ll leave with practical steps and strategies for guiding your fellow educators, students, and parents through the implementation of a standards-based grading system.
