Summary

At a time when educators are being bombarded with information on standards, testing, and other performance measurements, few if any books tackle the real crux of the matter: classroom grading. Now here's an authoritative guide that explains what's wrong with most grading systems and how they can be fixed. A renowned expert on standards and assessment provides you with a thorough understanding of what grades are for, what should be included in them, and how to compute final scores that accurately reflect student learning.

Explore seven basic forms of classroom assessment, the strengths and weaknesses of each, and how to combine the forms to provide a comprehensive picture of student knowledge and skill. Included are ideas for how to use technology to track and streamline grading, and how to gradually introduce an alternative grading approach to your school.
