Grading Practices Study.pptx
Summary: One of the four guiding principles of the High School 2022 theoretical framework is to ensure the use of fair, meaningful and equitable grading practices. To ensure this guiding principle is in place in our schools, division leaders undertook a study of grading practices during the 2017-2018 school year. This work included a survey of all teachers in grades 4-12 on their grading practices and beliefs. The results of this survey help to provide detail on the current state of our grading practices, and this year staff will be using this data to help determine what steps we may need to take as a division to help us achieve our key operating principle. Tonight board members will receive an update on the work we have completed to date and our plans for next steps in this process.
Funding: There are no funding implications at this time.
