    What are your thoughts on capturing grades based on specific standards?

    My teachers capture the students grades not by assignment, but on specific TEKS. For example, {8.8C – solving equations with variables on both sides} would be entered in to the gradebook. The teacher would capture the student’s current level of mastery through conferring with the student, an in-class assignment, Canvas assignment, quiz and even a unit assessment. On my teacher’s unit assessments, the assessed standards are broken down by question for the students to see how their performance on individual TEKS effects their overall average.

    While this doesn’t solve the expectation of A’s and B’s from parents, it does create a clearer picture of reality for the parents as to where their student’s strengths and weaknesses are.
