Sharing assessment & grading strategies that help students learn

Interesting ideas, there are those who would say if an assessment is graded (which is not the same as scored (rubrics)) it is probably not used by the student for learning as well as it could be.
Research from Wiliam would support this idea.
I have always maintained that is more a function of the culture in the classroom.
One thing is for certain if instructors will use more assessment that is not graded they will eventually get more buy in from students that assessment's major function is continuous improvement.
I would love to hear other points of view.

Michael - this is what we've been finding here at Salem High School. I was in a classroom today where the teacher had brilliantly included assessment into everything she did. Students were predicting their success based on their own analysis of their progress. Students were assessing their knowledge of course objectives. It was great to watch how excited the students were with the assessment activities.
