On October 23rd, 2015 I got the chance to share what Standards Based Grading looks like in a mathematics classroom! Standards based grading is an assessment philosophy that encourages a growth mindset by using a continuum of learning rubric rather than a points system. If you would like to know more or have questions about it, I LOVE to chat about it so feel free to get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
Here is the powerpoint presentation for those that missed it… I also mentioned that I would share the excel spreadsheet that I currently use. It takes a basic knowledge of excel (mostly hiding/unhiding cells, and if-then statements).
I’m also excited to share that we will have a user-friendly way to record, track, (and calculate) student’s progress, using a program that’s in development called Qualitative Gradebook. Stay tuned if you’re interested in using it! It will be ready in February 2016, and more information will be posted here when it’s ready!
Keep in touch! I would love your feedback and to hear what Standards Based Grading looks like in your context! 🙂
