Considering some of the recent conversations we have been having around grading, I wanted to highlight an upcoming TDP that might be of interest to some of you, especially at the secondary level.
"Declaring Grades in a Standards-Based System". It runs on February 4, 11, 18 and 25 from 4-6pm.
Description: Danielson 1c, 1e, 1f, 2b, 3a, 4c
As teachers continue to implement best practices in standards-based grading, such as providing high quality developmental feedback and using formative assessment to drive instruction, they continue to face the challenges of declaring and reporting final student grades. In this TDP course, participants will learn why declaring grades based on a body of evidence is a research based best practice. Then using course assessment rubrics, participants will learn how to make fair and accurate judgments about student work in order to report grades that are accurate, fair, and reliable for all students.
