I love the idea of using grades to push for growth, and student-directed growth. This year, I’ve been grading only summative assessments, or recording best-of-three quiz grades, and I’ve been using formatives for feedback. Students have been able to do retakes, but it’s not been systematized, and it’s been on their time (which doesn’t motivate ALL students toward growth). I made charts for students to track their progress, but never found the time to use them.
In short, it’s been largely an unfocused scramble! I think I’m heading in the right direction, but I want a more systematized and methodical framework for next year.
