JOE FELDMAN on Grading for Equity: What It Is, Why It Matters, and How It Can Transform Schools and Classrooms
Without a shared understanding of the most effective and equitable practices, we can inadvertently perpetuate the achievement and opportunity gaps among our students. That’s why it’s so critically important that teachers and administrators attend this webinar. Joe Feldman describes how grading practices that are accurate, bias-resistant, and motivational can reduce those gaps, improve learning for all students, minimize grade inflation, and become a lever for creating stronger teacher-student relationships and more caring classrooms.
Webinar attendees will:
• Begin to understand how our century-old grading practices often undermine effective and equitable teaching and learning, and contradict what we want students to believe about the path and their potential for academic success
• Learn about grading practices that are more mathematically sound, bias-resistant, and support students’ internal motivation
• Hear student, teacher, and researcher voices as well as quantitative data that explain the impact of these improved and more equitable grading practices
• Learn about other resources and opportunities to continue learning about more equitable grading practices
