    We are most certainly assessing as much as we can as often as we can, however those quantifiers and qualifiers we use may or may not all be shared with the student. So we want to keep feedbacking as often as we can, but also ensure students know that they can continue to demonstrate learning throughout the year (the door never shuts on them until the last day).

    I’ve tried going feedback only, some feedback with grades, and everywhere in between. You really need to find what works best for you to ensure students have an understanding of what you know they know, understand and can do and not have it too grade centric where they feel that they “have the grade that they want/need”. It’s a balancing act for sure.
