  1. Raising Questions and Finding Answers in Our Grading Practices DVD

    In his Raising Questions and Finding Answers in Our Grading Practices breakout session (from the 9 July 2009, Professional Learning Communities at Work™ Institute in Denver, Colorado), Tim Brown refers to grading as “one of the most controversial topics in our schools.” A grade represents a lot more than just the student’s grasp of the material; it also represents achievement of a standard, general aptitude, effort, improvement, compliance, attitude and participation. Brown argues that teachers in general haven’t taken the time to reflect on their grading practices, and that teachers who are too busy to reflect and attempt other options will ultimately contribute to the failure of some students.
