1 Standards Based Grading: An Intro Gerry Swan

2 All men can see the tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved. - Sun Tzu

3 What is the most annoying response?

4 “When people ask you why you did it and you say I don't know. That’s brain damage.”

5 "The revised report cards are known as standard space report cards and are already in use with kindergarten students," Thannum said. "It is an expanded report card that shows more information." The Carroll Independent School District (Carroll ISD) is an independent PK-12 school district serving the city of Southlake, Texas (USA)

23 Does it have face value?

24 Questionnaire Items % that selected (n=116) SDDASA The amount of information offered The quality of information provided The clarity of the information included The ease of understanding the information Parent Perceptions

25 Questionnaire Items % that selected (n=70) SDDASA The standards based report provides a thorough picture of my child’s academic life The standards based report is easily understood I prefer the standards based report to the traditional report card letter grade should reflect academic achievement and other processes (conduct, attitude, participation, effort, etc.) should be reported separately Parent Perceptions

39 What’s an A?

40 Which block is more dense?

41 A guy sitting in a boat has a huge 200lb rock with him. The boat is floating in an enclosed pool of water. The rock is thrown overboard and sinks. What happens to the level of water on the side of the pool? And why?

42 This is not Fleetwood Mac

43 You can’t go your own way

44 Mathematical Precision is Not A Grading Policy & can get you into trouble

51 We need to Challenge & Change Our Professional Practice

52 When you build something you’re going to need to fasten stuff

57 In determining grades we have to “fasten” pieces of evidence together.

58 Why limit ourselves to using the nail of grading (averaging of percentage scores)?

59 What % of the total grade should EOC exams count? Consider this burning question:

60 20%, 30%, 40%

61 Take this student…. Q1 = 58% Q2 = 68% Q3 = 77% Q4 = 85% EOC = 90%

62 73.6% = C

63 What if we said a student that scores > 80% on the EOC must get at least a C?

64 What if we said a student must score at least 80% on the EOC to get an A?

65 I’m not saying percentages are bad, but they are just one type of fastener.

66 When you build your new structure, look at all your options.

67 Targets are important, but are specific things we teach to help students get at a larger theme. Assessing at the strand level keeps the focus on the idea, makes a natural aggregation point (and makes it more manageable). Strand

68 Why do we have to put one grade?
