For Grading to Support Learning… (Susan Brookhart) :

For Grading to Support Learning… (Susan Brookhart ) Report card grades should reflect student achievement of intended learning outcomes. Grades on individual assessments should reflect achievement of performance standards on intended learning outcomes. If individual graded assessments don’t reflect intended learning outcomes, report grades drawn from them won’t either.

Eric Cohen…..Physics Teacher ASCD Education Update May 2013:

Eric Cohen…..Physics Teacher ASCD Education Update May 2013 “ I design my tests, which are a large percentage of their grades, to be slightly easier than quizzes. Students also have the option to retake quizzes to improve their grades. They get a few cracks at high-level material, which gives them more time to improve. This way, the students are challenged by the quizzes and end up being over-prepared for the tests, which count more toward their final grades.”

Understanding Grading How will you present your plan for grading to your students? In what ways do you see your plan for grading motivating students?
