Agenda for March 24th

1. Chicken or the Egg -- A discussion of what comes first when a school is wanting to improve its grading practices.

2. Accountability with Support


  • How are you holding students accountable for turning their work in?
  • What academic supports do you currently offer?
  • Are those supports designed to provide extra help, extra time, or extra practice?


3. Reflection on where your school is at and exploration of next steps.


We have included examples of Danny Hill's The Power of ICU layers of support, Ken O'Connor's Grading Fixes, and some resources from O'Connor's book A Repair Kit for Grading here in this link. https://tinyurl.com/jh98cehh

Purpose/Overview:



"If you are implementing any policies/procedures on missing assignments, creating quality assignments, or implementing new grading policies, you are welcome to participate."




It is our intention to provide a forum for dialogue and sharing on grading practices that better reflect student learning, resulting in increased achievement and a school culture of continuous improvement and high expectations for all students. 45-minute sessions will be held via zoom. Watch for updates on the www.ohiohstw.org website. Sessions will be led by administrators/school leaders with experience in efforts to improve grading practices in a school. Each session will be supported by HSTW consultants.
