    Standards-based Grading

    I have been using standards-based grading for several years now, after reading "Grading for Equity" by Joe Feldman. In this approach, grades are based on evidence of student proficiency, not points earned on an assignment. To learn more, check out the presentation I provided to district teachers in 2021. I will also share more information throughout the year. Please message me on Remind or stop in to visit anytime you have questions or concerns.
