Communicating about student achievement requires accurate, consistent and meaningful grades.
Educators interested in examining and improving grading practices should ask the following questions:
• Am I confident that students in my classroom receive consistent, accurate and meaningful grades that support learning?
• Am I confident that the grades I assign students accurately reflect my school or district’s published performance standards and desired learning outcomes?
In many schools, the answers to these questions often range from "not very" to "not at all." When that’s the case, grades are "broken" and teachers and schools need a "repair kit" to fix them. A Repair Kit for Grading: 15 Fixes for Broken Grades, 2/e gives teachers and administrators 15 ways to make the necessary repairs.
In Seven Strategies of Assessment Learning, author Jan Chappuis gives K to 12 classroom teachers an incisive look at seven practical strategies structured around three essential questions—Where am I going? Where am I now? and How can I close the gap? Complete with research-based recommendations about assessment practices for improving student achievement, the book is sequenced to help teachers easily weave formative assessment practices into daily teaching and assessment activities at all levels. After introducing the strategies and the research base for formative assessment practices, the remaining chapters explain each strategy in detail, provide a research-based rationale for using the strategy, describe how the strategy can be applied in contexts ranging from kindergarten through high school in a range of subject areas, and offer instructions for carrying out core procedures and suggestions for adaptations. The new features new, more recent research, extended examples of the strategies, and improved features that make the text easier to use for collaborative learning. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video, Discussion Questions, Reflection Journal, and Defining Assessments.
