Share This Product:

Aim for a target-based grading system and create stronger learning opportunities! 

Do you wish there was more clarity when it comes to measuring student progress and learning? What if there was a way to utilize grading and assessment to focus on learning rather than performance, and the process rather than the product?   

As grading, assessment, and reporting continue to be relevant topics of discussion, this book helps you create a functional plan to elevate and advance standards-based grading practices. Teachers and administrators will learn how to assess, grade, and report against specific learning targets rather than standards as a whole to make skill acquisition the highest priority. Grounded in application to provide focus and clarity, this book features:   

  • Real case studies of schools that have incorporated target-based assessment, feedback, grading, and reporting
  • Practical examples to guide implementation
  • Questions, checklists, illustrations, and audits of practice to showcase the work in action
  • An accessible format and layout that support both immediate implementation and long-term goals   

Despite being a topic that generates emotion and resistance to change, target-based assessment builds the foundation for a learner-centered system that provides clear expectations and feedback for teachers, students, and parents.
