Making the Grade: Standards-Based, Traditional, or Both?

87 total views

There has been a lot of conversation around the value of implementing standards-based grading in K-12 school systems. Research has shown that educators can accelerate students’ mastery of learning standards through meaningful and appropriate feedback while experience has proven implementation and buy-in from stakeholders to be common challenges. 

Watch this Tech & Learning webinar to hear Dr. Kecia Ray talk with educational leaders about common grading systems utilized in K-12 schools from standards-based to traditional and hybrid grading. The panel discussed:

  • How different grading scales communicate student performance
  • The meaning that grades carry, whether points or standards-based
  • Student motivation — is it tied to a specific grading policy?
