Curriculum, instruction, and assessment have increasingly become standards-based but parallel changes in grading and reporting have been slow, especially in middle and high schools. This webinar will focus on eight guidelines for standards-based grading. Issues that will be addressed include purpose, content standards, performance standards, learning skills/work habits, and hot button issues such as late work and academic dishonesty.
• Understand the value of a public, published primary purpose for grades;
• Know how and why to have a standards base for grades;
• Know why levels are better than point and percentages: and
• Know how to develop a learning culture rather than a grading culture.
