Assessment Learning Network, 2019-20

Friday, November 22, 2019 - Effective Grading Practice

9:30 am - 3:00 pm

University Club, Lansing, MI [MAP]

Effective grading can support students to become independent, self-directed learners and get the full benefits of high-quality teaching and assessment. Grades can provide important information for students, parents, teachers, and others, but to be useful grades must be meaningful, accurate, consistent, and supportive of learning. As schools move away from traditional grading practices toward more effective practices there are a number of "hot button" issues that cause difficulties and sometimes derail the implementation. Concurrently we have a growing body of research showing the positive effects of rich descriptive feedback to support learners and the positive ways the brain responds to information about progress. Ken O’Connor, international expert on the topic of effective standards-based grading and reporting, will address the positive challenges and current tensions associated with grading and reporting and the impact to students and their teachers. Arthur Chiaravalle, a leading practitioner voice for the benefit of fewer summative marks and more descriptive feedback to students, will augment this session with a practitioner’s perspective.
