Description

Evolving Education into Standards-Based Instruction, Grading, and Reporting (LA)

Grades pose tremendous consequences for students and has been a hot topic for many years. Standards-based grading is more than tweaking an existing grading system. Rather, it is a virtual revolution of existing curriculum, assessment, and reporting practices that is transformational. In this training, participants will explore specific aspects of standards-based grading implementation, from identifying prioritized learning goals and composing proficiency scales to creating aligned assessments and revising report cards. In addition, attendees will consider how schools are evolving into the future with such initiatives as the Mastery Transcript Consortium and competency-based education. Dr. Ruyle will walk participants through thoughtful and practical steps in terms of the implementation of each element of an effective proficiency-based grading system — highlighting the potential pitfalls, opportunities, and challenges.

The training format will focus on the most current, innovative research and will include direct instruction along with ample time to process and deepen the new knowledge. Day one will provide participants with the tools to deepen their knowledge in terms of identifying learning goals and how to create and use proficiency scales in their classrooms. This forms the foundation that leads to day two, in which participants will focus on the specific assessment and grading practices that will transform the classroom experience for students and teachers alike.
