Grading Reform

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
