Grading for Equity

Series Begins: 
October 27

Examining equitable practices for accurately representing student growth & to leverage engagement & improve access

Individual Registration for Pathway: $600 (includes 5 professional learning days)


In this 5-part series participants will focus on current grading practices and how they may be transformed to accurately represent student growth and mastery and be leveraged to promote engagement and improve access. 

Participants in this pathway will: 

  • Build capacity to lead transformation in grading practices, including developing a common purpose for grades

  • Investigate strategies for separating academic achievement from non-academic factors in grades

  • Strengthen skills in developing standards-based or competency-based rubrics and performance continua

  • Develop strategies to engage teachers, families, and community members in conversation about equity-focused grading, feedback, and assessment practices

Pathway sessions will be differentiated based on participants’ prior knowledge and /or engagement in the 2022-2023 pathway sessions.

Additionally, a Community of Practice cohort may be available for districts/participants who are presently engaged in transforming grading practices within their districts or schools. Please contact Michelle Gohagon, for more information.
