We are excited to try a new program to help you plan your experience at the 2016 NESSC High School Redesign in Action Conference. PLEASE NOTE: That all sessions are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Adding a session to your personal agenda does not ensure yourself a seat in the session, but rather a way to help you plan where to head.

Standards-Based Grading: Separating Academic Achievement and Habits of Work

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Over the past decade, the foremost researchers and experts on grading—including Ken O'Connor, Thomas Guskey, Robert Marzano, Douglas Reeves, Rick Stiggins, Rick Wormeli, and others—have come to agreement on one of the most important practices for improving instructional effectiveness and student learning: monitoring and reporting academic achievement separately from work habits, character traits, and behaviors such as attendance, class participation, and turning work in on time.

In this session, participants will learn about habits-of-work reporting and how the practice can help teachers more accurately diagnose learning needs and improve academic interventions and support. Participants will also learn how to communicate the rationale for separating work habits from content knowledge and skills in grading, and how to engage students, faculty, families, and community members in the process.
