Standards-Based Grading in a Project-Based School: Reflections, Challenges, and Successes

Browse recordings: livestream.com/educon4

Session Five: Sunday 12:30pm–2:00pm
Room 209
Rosalind Echols, Erin Garvey, Brad Latimer, Mark Miles, Sunil Reddy, and students of SLA
Conversation Description:

What is standards-based grading, and how can it be developed and used in a project-based school? During this past school year, SLA math and science teachers implemented SBG in multiple classes in an effort to promote not only retention of material and demonstration of knowledge, but also a focus on the individual learning process as it pertains to specific courses. In this conversation, SLA teachers and students will discuss the process of shifting to a SBG model in a project-based school. The conversation will include the actual implementation of SBG at SLA (how we changed our language and gradebooks), the balance of offering various options for students to demonstrate comprehension of key concepts, and challenges that we have faced along the way.

Conversational Practice:
Both teachers and students will engage in a whole-group open dialogue focused on implementing SBG in a PBL environment. Presentation: http://tinyurl.com/4amf5cc Scoring Examples: http://tinyurl.com/67gsvqu
