    Biggest takeaway: Why does a grade on Sept 23 still effect the overall grade, if that student has improved on those concepts?

    I wonder: logistically how to reassess and not lose my mind 🙂

    I implemented what I call Evidence of Learning Portfolios and had students answer “big idea” questions each unit through a google slides. The Advanced category on the rubric required a connection, depth, or multiple methods. Some students did not like this, but I thought it helped push students to get past memorizing procedures. After grading students could come in for “closing arguments” where they could show me that they really did understand the big idea. This was a step in the right direction, but very time consuming!
