  • There are 5 Categories based on the standards. They are Based on the Common Core Standards www.commoncore.org We use a percent scale the helps parents and students see whether or not the students have meet or exceeded the standards taught through an assignment ( New: Correspond with student’s meeting/exceeding the standards) Emphasizes Revision and Improvement for each student: Multiple Opportunities Common Assessment (all teachers in the subject collaborating to grade writing assignments). Scoring Guides for each assignment show exactly where student can improve skills (& grade) by revising (process of peer-review, teacher conference, writers workshop, or other revision strategy that fits the task).
  • Old 1. An essay final draft grade was permanent, leaving students no opportunity to learn at their pace. New 2. An essay may be revised several times if the student wishes to learn how to improve skills and raise the level of proficiency (& the grade) Old 3. Rubrics used sentences and language that was descriptive and subjective, leaving students’ sense of their writing skill uncertain, dependent on a teacher’s interpretation of the rubric. New 4. Teachers of the same course give the same skills tests and essay assignments, which they have created as a course team by developing standards-based assessments and scoring guides with clear, brief language Old 5. Teachers planned curriculum so that a student may only have one or two opportunities to demonstrate proficiency on a skill, meaning the student could complete the course with a passing grade, even without meeting the standards. New 6. When planning the curriculum for the year, the AmLit team makes sure to include multiple opportunities to demonstrate proficiency on a reading, writing, or language skills. The new grading system gives students incentive to continue to improve their skills, regardless of due dates
  • Communication about student’s progress on the common core standards. Specific, based on scoring guides, about where a student can improve skills. Encouraging, rather than punishing: late work penalties and extra credit are extinct. The only way to make up for not doing the work is by doing the work.
