Gearing up for Fast Grading and Reporting
O'Connor, Ken; Jung, Lee Ann; Reeves, Douglas
Phi Delta Kappan, v99 n8 p67-71 May 2018
The authors posit that the traditional grading system involving points and percentages is not the best way to prepare students to be the self-directed, independent learners they need to be. A better system would produce grades that are FAST (fair, accurate, specific, timely). To bring about these changes, school leaders need not create full agreement about new models but should, instead, create circumstances that make action more likely.
