- Formative Assessment and Standards Based Grading
Education experts Robert J. Marzano, PhD and Tammy Heflebower explain the research, theory and practice of their widely adopted methodology based on the assumption that to design instruction that advances all their students’ achievement, teachers must be able to design assessments that fully illuminate what their students are learning. Participants will learn how to track student progress through detailed descriptors of the essential skills and knowledge students must learn for meaningful and purposeful learning; the kind of feedback, assessment, and grading students need to help them learn; how to construct those assessments; how to create rubric-based scales to inform both formative and summative assessments; and how to monitor and affect student progress. The course features interviews with teachers and students, classroom footage, workshop activities, presentations, and an accompanying text. Grading criteria can also then be more adequately communicated to parents in measuring student achievement.
