Session Detail

Learning Oriented (Competency-Based/Standards-Based Grading) Instructional and Grading Practices (Virtual)

How do your grades represent learning? Through self-reflection and exploration of historical perspectives on current grading practices, we will compare traditional and learning-oriented (e.g. standards-based grading) grading practices. In this session, we will identify the components of learning-oriented grading policies and practices that promote a growth mindset and student success. Participants will understand effective instructional and reporting practices, with special emphasis on why learning-oriented policies promote student success, how to transition grading and instructional practices, and what it means for teachers and students. We will explore learning-oriented practices as well as action steps to transition from traditional grading and instructional practices to learning-oriented grading and instructional practices. This is an introductory session to the topic intended to provide a rational for practicing learning oriented grading practices and what the first steps are in making the transition.
