Standards-based grading helps teachers provide meaningful feedback on student progress—but it’s a radical departure from the status quo. If you don’t lead this change carefully, your initiative will flame out before it ever takes off.
Grading changes require input from your community. That means talking to people and seeking their feedback. Clearly explain your new grading framework, draft a plan that your community understands and supports, and keep parents engaged throughout the transition.
