Exceptional Learners & Grading

Practices to Support Student Learning

DECEMBER 7, 2015

Teachers receive very little guidance for grading students with disabilities, English Language Learners, and those receiving services through MTSS. This workshop will provide educators with an effective framework for assigning grades that are accurate, meaningful, and supportive of learning.


This model will help teachers:


  • Determine appropriate expectations for each student
  • Understand the differences between accommodations and modifications
  • Assign grades based on modified expectations.
  • Communicate meaningful information to students and their families


Our guest presenter, Lee Ann Jung, PhD, is Professor and Director of International School Partnerships for the College of Education at University of Kentucky. She has worked in the field of special education since 1994 and has served in the roles of teacher, administrator, researcher and consultant. Lee Ann is actively engaged with schools and districts in supporting growth in the areas of standards-based assessment, family support, IEP/IFSP development, planning intervention, and measuring progress.

Grading Exceptional and Struggling Learners with Dr. LeeAnn Jung & Dr. Thomas R. Guskey


"The model presented in this book is the best one I know for approaching the difficult task of grading exceptional and struggling learners. It makes sense, and it honors principles of learning, instruction, and validity of measurement. Examples show how the model applies to a variety of struggling students. The book is clear and readable. I recommend it for teachers at all levels."
