Standards-Based Grading and Reporting Will Improve Education
Muñoz, Marco A.; Guskey, Thomas R.
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n7 p64-68 Apr 2015
Grading and reporting are foundational elements in nearly every educational system. Grading represents teachers' evaluations, formative or summative, of students' performance. Reporting is how the results of those evaluations are communicated to students, parents, or others. Because of their fundamental nature, educators must ensure that grading and reporting always meet the criteria for validity and reliability. And because of their primary communication purpose, educators must also ensure that grading and reporting are meaningful, accurate, and fair.
