Standards-based grading continues to gain popularity as schools look to measure students’ mastery of grade-level standards, in addition to, or in place of, traditional grades. As school leaders reimagine the grading systems utilized by educators in their community, many are finding that grading is not a “one-size-fits-all” model.

Join this webinar to hear from three educational leaders with extensive experience with standards-based grading in K-12 schools who will explore:

  • How standards-based grading is different from traditional grading and the impact school leaders are seeing on student growth following implementation
  • Revisioning grading systems flexibly – what works best across grade level bands from elementary to high school
  • Common challenges that arise when revising grading policies in a K-12 community and tangible solutions
  • How to gain buy-in from teachers, students, and families
