Otus is an integrated platform that enables school districts to confidently implement standards-based grading and accelerate student growth. In this Otus Live professional development session, Matt Townsley will debunk common myths about standards-based grading so educators can prevent these ideas from taking hold in a school community and shift the conversation back to student learning and achievement.

Matt Townsley is an Assessment/Grading enthusiast who has authored multiple books including Making Grades Matter: Standards-Based Grading in a Secondary PLC at Work (2020, Solution Tree) and Using Grading to Support Student Learning (2022, Routledge). As a former district administrator and secondary teacher in the Solon Community School District (Solon, IA), he has firsthand experience implementing and leading lasting grading reform.
