Grading Practices that Impact Student Success 

Yellow Rulers

This interactive workshop examines 10 grading practices that teachers often use to assess student achievement, but can hinder student success. Teachers who use effective teaching practices and establish powerful learning objectives that are measurable are able to incorporate formative, summative and authentic assessments to ensure student-learning outcomes are met. Participants will be introduced to the Layered Curriculum and Multiple Intelligences, two research-based instructional strategies that can serve as alternative assessment tools to gage student mastery of content and to maximize student success. The workshop takes a Backward Design approach to looking at what we want students to know and be able to do at the end of a term or semester. Participants will use Bloom’s Taxonomy to review lesson plans for alignment of assignments and assessments with subject matter goals and objectives. Alignment of assignments and assessments with teaching and learning provide multiple opportunities to track student progress and increase student performance, student engagement, and student achievement.  (1.5 – 3.0 hours)
