  8. Rethinking Grading: Meaningful Assessment for Standards-based Learning

After careful research and years of experiences with grading as a teacher and parent, Cathy Vatterott examines and debunks traditional practices and policies of grading in F-12 schools. She offers a new paradigm for standards-based grading that focuses on student mastery of content and gives concrete examples from primary, middle years and secondary schools. Rethinking Grading will show all educators at all levels how standards-based grading can authentically reflect student progress and learning - and significantly improve both teaching and learning.
