Grading and Reporting: Current Trends in School Policies & Programs.
Brodinsky, Ben, Ed.
This publication, the result of literature surveys, practitioner interviews, and data gathering from a nationwide sampling of school districts, provides information on the trends, concepts, and patterns in grading and reporting that are emerging; and describes some of the practices that are clearly favored over others. The report includes practical information on (1) ways of probing for and reporting on reading progress at all levels; (2) actual samples of innovative reporting forms from 22 schools (K-12), with an analysis of each; (3) information on methods used by 13 districts that have recently changed their grading and reporting procedures; (4) how behavioral objectives are used in report forms; (5) the use of computerized report cards; and (6) the advantages of using two or more grades instead of a single rating.
