What Kind Of Grading System Should We Use?

By Larry Ferlazzo — April 11, 2012 1 min read

Charlie Herzog asks:

Should we continue to assign students grades in the traditional manner
(percentages & letters), or should we move towards a system based on levels of
mastery?

I’m expecting a lot of reader comments on this one! Feel free to share any of your thoughts on grading, even if they do not directly answer Charlie’s question.

Please share your ideas in the comments, or, if you prefer, feel free to email them to me.

Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a selection of twelve -- including my own -- published by Eye On Education.

You can send questions to me at lferlazzo@epe.org.When you send in your question, let me know if I can use your real name if it’s selected or if you’d prefer remaining anonymous and have a pseudonym in mind.

And just a reminder -- you can subscribe to this blog for free via RSS Reader or email....
