Dramatically impact teaching and learning in your classroom! Learn the ‚??hows‚?Ě and ‚??whys‚?Ě of assessing and grading diverse learners.

  • Focus assessments so that they provide valid evidence of what is and is not mastery.
  • Effectively use assessment that reveals your students‚?? readiness and then provides descriptive feedback to help students revise their efforts and achieve mastery of content and skills.
  • Identify the necessary elements for useful pre, formative, common, and summative assessments that really work in today‚??s classrooms.
  • Know what to grade, how to grade, and how to report a grade, especially when working with students who learn differently.
  • Thoughtfully address the burning issues of assessment and grading, including: designing rubrics, using grading scales, averaging scores, handling zeroes, homework, do-overs, late work, extra credit, and much more.
  • Develop a principled mindset to determine assessment and grading techniques that create transcripts of true integrity that stakeholders in other schools and districts can trust.
