What do students really know? What can they really do? Slide 2 Calculate the students grade given the scores on your slip of paper. SCORES: B+A- B- CDC+ missing assignment Slide 3 Traditional grading practices are not valid or fair. Slide 4 Documentation of progress Feedback for student, parent, & teacher Drives instructional decisions A method to sort students Motivation for students Punishment for students Slide 5 A performance based measure of student proficiency and mastery of knowledge or skills driven by standards. What the student must know so that they will be able to do. NO MATTER THE PATH TAKEN TO GET THERE. Slide 6 Slide 7 AMY had the most passing scores. Six attempts were passing. Beth had FIVE Carol had FIVE BETH had the highest average. It was a 65% Amys was 60% Carols was 55% Carol had the most perfect scores. Slide 8 1. Extra Credit 2. Bonus Points 3. Grades not relevant to subject Slide 9 4. Late Work Penalties 5. Not Allowing Do-Overs 6. Accepting Incomplete Work Slide 10 7. Homework as Graded Evidence 8. The Marking Period Killer Project 9. Graded Busy Work Slide 11 10. The 100 Point Scale and the TOXIC ZERO A = 90 - 100% 11 chances B = 80 - 89%10 chances C = 70 - 79%10 chances D = 60 - 69%10 chances F = 0 - 59%60 chances Slide 12 Zeroes skew the average A zero gives little chance to achieve a good grade EVEN if the skill is mastered WATCH AND LEARN MORE Slide 13 Why dont identical scores result in the same grade? Scoring and grading is dependent on how and who does the scoring and grading. Slide 14 1. Averaging underestimates a students knowledge. 2. Averaging assumes no learning has occurred over time. Slide 15 Assessment tools change to Learning Targets. Scores are based on the most recent student performance. Scores based only on what a student knows and is able to do right now. Slide 16 4 = ADVANCED (above & beyond) 3 = PROFICIENT (arrived) 2 = NEEDS IMPROVEMENT (on the way) 1 = UNSATISFACTORY (at the starting gate) 0 = NO EVIDENCE OF PROFICIENCY (not even near the gate) Slide 17 4I know (can do) it well enough to make connections that were not even taught. 3I know (can do) everything that was taught without making mistakes. 2I know (can do) all of the easy parts, but I dont know (cant do) the harder parts. 1With help, I know (can do) some of what was taught. 0I dont know (cant do) any of it. STUDENT VIEW Slide 18 NEW GRADING SYSTEM: Grading Scale: 4 = A+ 3 = B 2 = C 1 = D 0 = F / NOT DONE Slide 19 Eschool is based on a 100 point scale. Percentages are misleading if both the student and parent are not made aware. A = 87% to 100% B = 75% to 86% C = 50% to 74% D = 25% to 49% F = 0% to 24% Slide 20 MORE ABOUT GRADING : 1. Incomplete work will not be acceptable 2. Do-overs encouraged on most assignments 3. Conditional penalties for late work 4. Some class work will be optional (benefits poor test takers) 5. Larger assignments will be weighted 6. No extra credit or bonus points
