Standards Based Grading

I have been using the Standards-Based Grading model since 2018. In short, it is a method of assessing students based on their mastery of each standard in the curriculum, rather than their performance on individual assignments and assessments. Standards-Based Grading also removes any grading procedure that rewards or punishes behavior, like “extra credit” or “zeros for late work”.

I believe in Standards-Based Grading because it is a more effective way to communicate to each student what his or her individual strengths and weaknesses are. This allows students to individualize their study habits in preparation for upcoming assessments. It also allows them to reflect on any patterns they see in similar strengths and similar weaknesses.
