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 region’'s published performance standards and desired learning outcomes? The 'fixes' in the title include four categories that reflect common grading challenges: distorted achievement, low-quality or poorly organised evidence, inappropriate grade calculation and linking grades more closely to student learning.
