The Last Frontier
Tackling the Grading Dilemma DVD
Ken O'Connor is an independent consultant who specialises in issues related to the communication of student achievement, especially grading and reporting. Through books and articles, presentations and working with small groups Ken helps individuals, schools and school districts to improve communication about student achievement. He is now generally acknowledged to be one of a small group of leading experts on how to grade and report effectively.
In this video presentation, Ken submits that traditionally, grading encourages competition rather than collaboration and results. In order to get grades that are accurate, meaningful, consistent and supportive of learning, he outlines eight fundamental grading guidelines that will move traditional grades to standards-based. He also details how to implement them and support your staff as they change their attitudes and approaches toward grading - particularly in the middle years and secondary school.
Includes 99 minute-DVD with presentation and accompanying CD-ROM with presentation handouts and supporting resources.
