About the Event

"Standards-Based Grading: How to implement a meaningful grading system that improves success"

Workshop Summary:

But it's often the opposite that happens.

Numbers and percentages become meaningless because they’re unable to tell the full story behind a student’s level of understanding causing our students to miss out on the specific feedback they need to make improvements. But what if scores didn’t require the interpretation that’s often needed before they could inform classroom instruction?

Standards-Based Grading is a system that clearly identifies the standards students have mastered, tracks specific progress, and illustrates the big picture for long-term development. In this workshop, we show you how to implement Standards-Based Grading in your classroom and school so that you can collect data that’s meaningful and paints a clear picture of student achievement.

It's time to create a meaningful grading system that:

Equips teachers with tools to identify knowledge gaps.

When teacher know how to align grading practices both horizontally and vertically, they'll be more equipped to meet the foundational needs of students across content areas.

Empowers students to take ownership of their learning

When students have an awareness of their skills mastery, they can track their progress and become more active participants in their development.

Provides families with accurate feedback

Instead of a numeral or letter-based score as a measurement of mastery, students and parents would know which specific skills they still need to practice.

Improves academic achievement

With more meaningful data about what skills students have yet to master, teachers can design more targeted instruction that improves test scores and overall achievement.

In this two-part virtual live workshop, you and your staff will learn:

Prioritize standards and scale mastery

We'll cover how to examine your state standards to create viable learning targets and assessments that are both horizontally and vertically aligned.

Implement a Standards-Based Grading system

We'll walk you through the exact steps to implement Standards-Based Grading so you can introduce this system to students and parents with confidence and clarity.

Utilize the provided resource library

We'll show you how to use our Standard’s Based Grading resources that include specific grade-level examples of guides, scales, and assessments.
