    Thank you for breaking it down this way. I’m most intrigued by the concept of interleaving assessments. My school requires us to have formative and summative grades in the grade book. Most people take this to mean formative = quizzes and summative = tests. Formative assessments count for 30% of your overall course grade and summative assessments count for 50%.The way you described your “check-ins” makes them seem like they are more of a formative assessment. Do you also do some kind of summative assessment? If so, when? If required to grade within this framework, how would you suggest those assessments be graded? (I know this might open up a whole can of worms about standards-based grading!)
