Quick Overview

In Grading From the Inside Out, Tom Schimmer establishes
that the time for grading reform is now. Traditional grading procedures no
longer work due to vast changes in pedagogy and assessment. While F-12 teachers
and administrators may feel hesitant about moving away from past practices or
making profound changes in grading, and while it may be challenging, a change
in grading to a standards-based mindset is essential for effective instruction
and assessment. To help readers develop standards-based mindsets about grading,
Schimmer proposes a grading paradigm based on a new approach to reporting
student achievement.
