Grades K-12 October 4, 2016
East Noble High School Auditorium
Join us for a provocative workshop in
which we identify fundamental elements of formative assessment and contrast
them with elements of summative judgment. We will take a compelling look at what is and is not standards-based assessment and
grading. We’ll explore what it means to be truly evidence-based in
assessing and reporting students’ achievements regarding standards and learner
outcomes. We’ll address the biggest concerns in grading today: averaging,
zeroes on the 100-point scale, re-do’s, percentages, grading scales, late work,
marking homework, extra credit, gradebook and report card design, formative vs
summative assessments, reporting behavior/effort/character elements,
disaggregation, and much more. Don’t miss this chance to confront
misconceptions and make the most of students’ learning!
Cost: *Free to consortium members. * Nonmembers $150 (Register 5 people and 6th goes free)
