Overview

Includes Repair Kit for Grading, A: Fifteen Fixes for Broken Grades and Grading & Reporting in Standards-Based Schools Standalone DVD.

Communicating about student achievement requires accurate, consistent and meaningful grades.

Educators interested in examining and improving grading practices should ask the following questions:

• Am I confident that students in my classroom receive consistent, accurate and meaningful grades that support learning?

• Am I confident that the grades I assign students accurately reflect my school or district’s published performance standards and desired learning outcomes?

In many schools, the answers to these questions often range from "not very" to "not at all." When that’s the case, grades are "broken" and teachers and schools need a "repair kit" to fix them. A Repair Kit for Grading: 15 Fixes for Broken Grades gives teachers and administrators 15 ways to make the necessary repairs.

The DVD, featuring Rick Stiggins and Ken O’Connor, provides educators and learning teams with an interactive professional development presentation that discusses why grades must serve a communication versus a motivation function, why focus on achievement is essential, why achievement must represent mastery of standards and how to report on other non-achievement student characteristics.
