Third Edition


© 2009 | 96 pages | Corwin

Demonstrate how teachers can link grading to standards to promote student achievement!

Designed around the third edition of Ken O'Connor's best-selling How to Grade for Learning, this comprehensive multimedia presentation offers staff developers the necessary materials to help K–12 teachers apply effective grading strategies that support learning and encourage student success. Participants will be able to examine and reflect on their own methods and ensure that grading practices

  • Honor the learning process and include students in both learning and assessment
  • Reflect definitive information about a student's academic strengths and weaknesses
  • Accurately measure achievement only, separate from behavior
  • Are consistent and aligned with performance standards that are clearly communicated to students

How to Grade for Learning, K–12, Third Edition: A Multimedia Kit for Professional Development provides

  • The companion book, How to Grade for Learning, K–12, Third Edition, which defines the relationship between content standards, performance standards, assignments, assessments, and grades
  • A 53-minute, content-rich DVD featuring Ken O'Connor presents essential elements of effective grading models and offers a navigation menu for easy stop-and-search control of video content
  • A step-by-step facilitator's guide connecting the book's content to the DVD and including segment prompts, workshop activities, and discussion questions
  • A CD-ROM providing a digital copy of the entire facilitator guide and overheads for easy use during presentations

This all-in-one package will be indispensable for staff developers, principals, and district administrators leading professional development to help teachers develop grading methods that accurately reflect each learner's academic achievements.
