Teaching with the End in Mind: The Role of Standards-Based Grading
Shippy, Nicole; Washer, Barton A.; Perrin, Billie
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v105 n2 p14-16 2013
Grading according to standards, competencies, or concepts is nothing new.With the current grading system gaining more scrutiny, parts of the basic framework of how we grade students are being questioned. Stephens (2010) and Marzano and Heflebower (2011) reinforced the notion that homework, behavior, attendance, notebooks, and group work should not be factored into a student's grade. Standards-based grading allows students to be graded solely on mastery of course content, which can lead to student motivation and a meaningful learning relationship. As family and consumer sciences educators, we need to demonstrate to students the standards under which they will be evaluated in the professional and postsecondary world.
