  18. 18. Topics to Consider #1What is the purpose of grading?  Grades Indicate Effort: You can’t get an A if you don’t do homework. If you do half the work on your job, you get fired.  Grades are Motivational: It’s important to keep hope alive. Once kids think they will fail they will stop trying.  Grades Reflect Mastery: Some students need to work harder than others. At the end of the day it’s about the results.Educational Leadership: Effective Grading Practices Issue (November 2011) by ASCD

Topics to Consider #2Which of these are true about grading?  Grades should determine the group or track a student should be placed in. “A” students need harder classes.  Grades should be set to a bell curve.  Poor grades motivate students to try harder.Educational Leadership: Effective Grading Practices Issue (November 2011) by ASCD
