Help people understand the difference—and why it matters

The Challenge

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.


The Opportunity

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.


How K12 Insight can help

K12 Insight

The K12 Insight platform helps you to seek candid feedback from your school community, define the motivations behind standards-based grading changes, and build support for long-term school and student success.

  • Communicate your standards-based grading plan and solicit candid feedback from all stakeholder groups
  • Hear from your entire school community before making important changes with the right grading-policy survey
  • Invite parents, staff, and students to help
    you define new standards of academic
    success
  • Ensure everyone understands the grading
    system before you make changes
