Interesting grading scheme that Dan has described:
I have inserted a table below on where I currently am with configuring overall grades. Students will be assessed on about 8 standards per quarter. After making the table, does it seem hard to follow, or simply in need of a complete makeover? The ‘Lowest Standard Score’ means that for an overall grade of ‘A’, they need to score 3 or higher on all assessments. Re-takes are possible to override a low score.
Grade Lowest Standard Score At Least… A 3.0 two standard scores of 4.0 B 2.0 five standard scores of 3.0 C 2.0 two standard scores of 3.0 D 1.0 two standard scores of 2.0 F less than 1.0
I really like the idea of making student grades reflect all of the objectives, and that it doesn’t leave as much wiggle room to ignore a failed objective. Definitely have to think about that this weekend.
