Rick Wormeli: Standards-Based Grading


Monday, January 20, 8:00am – 3:00pm


Clearwater High School 1201 East Ross Clearwater, KS. 67026


Join us for a candid and compelling look at what is and is not standards-based assessment and grading. We will explore what it means to be truly evidence-based in assessing and reporting students' achievements regarding standards and learner outcomes, and we will address the biggest concerns in grading today:

  • averaging 
  • zeroes on the 100-point scale 
  • re-do's
  • percentages 
  • grading scales 
  • late work
  • valedictorian 
  • what colleges are seeking 
  • ethics/integrity
  • marking homework 
  • extra credit 
  • gradebook and report card designs 
  • formative vs. summative assessments 
  • what constitutes evidence of mastery 
  • reporting behavior/effort/character elements
  • disaggregation, and much more

 Don't miss this chance to confront misconceptions and make the most of students' learning!
