Lately, I have been hearing about standards based grading a lot. It seems to be the newest "thing" in teaching. I teach high school and am wondering what this actually looks like in a classroom. How does it translate to a letter grade system if that is what the school uses? I am curious if any of you on AtoZ work in a school that has shifted to this practice, or if any of you have implemented it in your classrooms. How has it worked for you? I am not necessarily considering a shift, but I would like to learn more about the idea. Is it practical?
