Rethinking Letter Grades: A Five-Step Approach for Aligning Letter Grades to Learning Standards

Front Cover
Portage & Main Press, Feb 15, 2014 - Education - 72 pages
Authors, Caren Cameron and Kathleen Gregory, offer a practical five-step process for arriving at letter grades that moves away from collecting a string of marks and calculating a grade. They offer an alternative assessment method by examining a wide variety of assessment tools (rating scales, scoring keys, rubrics, test scores, observation records, discussion notes, symbols, portfolio collections, and more) and match the student evidence with a description of achievement.
