I have looked for answers for YEARS and not come up with a convincing agruement for how to GRADE special service students. Achievement? By what scale? Effort? Selecting a goal - say 15 points above their cold/pre-unit grade? What? How does your school/you do it? *** Students are going home with "honors" distinctions - and one on ones who spent the massive lion's share of the time are not even consulted as to their effort or to pass on their work. (If what THEY are doing is honors - then doesn't that dismiss REAL honors distinctions? I'm wondering what others are doing - but I HAVE to think there is a BETTER model out there than this.
