During this episode of “A Seat at the Table,” former K-5 public school principal turned popular author, presenter, and Education Week opinion blogger, Peter DeWitt will discuss grading and assessment during the current pandemic with Thomas R. Guskey, a senior research scholar at the University of Louisville.

As the number of schools preparing for virtual learning in the fall semester continues to grow, how can they use effective grading policies to capture student learning accurately and—at the same time—avoid giving students a free pass to just not show up?
