Sharing assessment & grading strategies that help students learn
Grades must be representative of what a student knows and can do. What should go into the grades? Assessments of learning
Their ability and what the student knows for the standard and skill being covered.
A grade should represent what a student knows or can do - mastery level.
A grade should be an accurate reflection of how the student is performing based on the standard of learning expectation.
Grades should represent what students know, understand, and can do. Grades should show a student's growth and mastery of content.
A grade represents a student's acquisition of content after opportunities for remediation.
We think a student's final grade should reflect what a student knows and can do. We still question how you can hold students accountable for citizenship/life skills.
We want the "letters" to be a representation of different levels of proficiency students have achieved during the student's time in the class. We want that grade to be measures of assessments completed during the grading period.
