Do we need to re-imagine grading and assessment or ask the deeper question: Do we need to re-imagine learning? If the purpose of grading is to communicate learning, then we must redefine the performance criteria demanded of our students in their journey to college and career readiness. Moving from traditional learning and assessment systems is a challenge for any school. It calls on us to look closely at who holds the vision for learning and how we can best prepare our learners with academic preparedness as well as their personal success skills. Competency-based learning, assessment, and grading moves traditional school structures to meet students where they are in their learning while holding them to high levels or academic preparedness and growth in their personal success skills in their learning journey.
Come spend the day exploring the latest research, talking to practitioners, and learning new models for grading and assessments.
