Not sure what to think of this and I wanted to get a little feedback from others in Education. This is where our school is leaning. "Historically, grades have been a mixture of each teacher’s homework, class work, quizzes, tests, and finals, along with any make up and extra credit work to result in a grade. In a standards based system, the measure is on student learning. Did the student learn the critical standards? It may take multiple re teachings and multiple quizzes for the student to reach advanced status. Are they then deserving an “A”? or something less? What if they scored an “F”, a “D”, then an “A”. The real question is whether we value what the student learned or we value our grading policy, and how grades reflect emphasis on learning. History and practice tell us to value the policy. A focus on learning simply asks the question: Did the student learn? When they do, what grade do they get? We’ll discuss further!!"--This is from admin at my school. I just feel like all accountability from the student is taken away. Ideas, thoughts, comments???
