I had 2 big takeaways. The first is the idea of eliminating review days. I agree with this because if we’re spiraling there is no need to review. Why cram when we can give students multiple opportunities to show what they know about a concept throughout the whole year.
The other takeaway is to give students shorter and more frequent assessments. Instead of giving long tests, students can show what they know in a short focused question.
My wonder is how to best convert standards-based grading into letter grades because unfortunately we all have to. That’s part of the reason why I’m here!
