Description

Assessment/Standards-Based Grading

July 5 - 7, 2017

Leader: Mark Schober and Manjula Nair

This three-day workshop will guide you through the steps to set up your classes for standards-based grading. We will show you an incremental approach to implementing SBG principles, provide sample learning standards, assessments, and gradebooks, and give you structured time and feedback as you tailor these tools for your own classes. Throughout, we will consider how to make an effective assessment strategy that is an integral part of a cyclical learning process.

Standards-Based Grading provides students itemized feedback according to your course learning objectives, or standards. Students then know what ideas they do and don’t understand. Students practice concepts needing further study in preparation to reassess and show what they have learned. In short, SBG encourages a growth-mindset, practice-until-you-succeed approach to teaching and learning.

The workshop presenter’s article, "An 8-Step Transition from Points-Based Grading to Standards-Based Grading” will be made available later this spring at www.modelingscience.org.


Schedule and Location: The workshop will run for 3 days (July 5, 2017 - July 7, 2017) in Manhattan, at Teachers College, Columbia University (Zankel Hall Rm 404, 525 West 120 St., New York, NY 10027).

Photographs and Video Recordings: We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC - a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.

If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded - you must inform us at check-in. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group so as to help us avoid you.
