Making Standards Based Grading Work in Your World Language Classroom
If we agree that grades have great power to motivate or discourage students, then we must not only plan excellent lessons, but also assess student knowledge and ability in the most efficient, meaningful, and dynamic ways possible. What should count in a grade? What shouldn’t count in a grade? How do we deal with extra credit, late work, low-quality work, participation, and homework?
Participants will be given an overview of basic principles of Standards Based Grading and practical ideas about how to communicate clearly with students about their strengths and weaknesses. We’ll discuss ideas from A Repair Kit for Grading; 15 Fixes for Broken Grades by Ken O’Connor. Discover practical strategies for dealing with potential pitfalls of Standards Based Grading. Examples of teacher-created standards-based scoring guides for speaking, writing, listening, reading, grammar, and vocabulary assessments will be shared. Explore how to make your class about learning and not just grades!
Participants will earn five CPDUs. Lunch and Continental Breakfast are included in the Registration Fee. Register Now!
