Teacher Vignette
Policy Example

Student Involvement
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Example
Don't give points for extra credit or use bonus points; seek only evidence that more work has resulted in a higher level of achievement
Student Involvement
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Examples
Don't punish academic dishonesty with reduced grades; apply other consequences and reassess to determine actual level of achievement
Student Involvement
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Example
Don't consider attendance in grade determination; report absences separately
Summary
Teacher Vignettes
Policy Example
Don't include group scores in grades; use only individual achievement evidence
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Example
Fixes for Low-Quality or Poorly Organized Evidence
Don't organize information in grading records by assessment methods or simply summarize into a single grade; organize and report evidence by standards/learning goals
Summary
Teacher Vignettes
Policy Example
Don't assign grades using inappropriate or unclear performance standards; provide clear descriptions of achievement expectations
Student Involvement
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Example
Don't assign grades based on a student's achievement compared to other students; compare each student's performance to preset standards
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Example
Don't rely on evidence gathered using assessments that fail to meet standards of quality; rely only on quality assessments
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Example
Fixes for Inappropriate Grade Calculation
Don't rely only on the mean; consider other measures of central tendency and use professional judgment
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Example
Don't include zeros in grade determination when evidence is missing or as punishment, use alternatives, such as reassessing to determine real achievement, or use "I" for Incomplete or Insufficient Evidence
Student Involvement
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Example
Fixes to Support Learning
Don't use information from formative assessments and practice to determine grades; use only summative evidence
Student Involvement
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Examples
Don't summarize evidence accumulated over time when learning is developmental and will grow with time and repeated opportunities; in those instances, emphasize more recent achievement
Summary
Teacher Vignette
Policy Example
Don't leave students out of the grading process. Involve students; they can-and should-play key roles in assessment and grading that promote achievement
