Redefining Assessment, an Online Conversation

I have been working on a project over the past 8 months or so regarding grading and assessment. Over the past few months I have been working with faculty members to redefine our grading and assessment systems. It has been a tough conversation - one that we need to have. So, I have decided to bring that conversation to the Interweb.

On February 9, 2011 at 7:00PM, join me online as I discuss the results that we found as we stepped outside of the traditional grading and assessment system.

We will be going in-depth about the 50 Point Project. The 50 Point Project, is the journey that myself and 24 other educators have been on since the beginning of this school year. Basically, the 50 Point Project uses a 50-point minimum grading scale to focus on the motivation and success of all students. In addition, we have redefined what "A" work really is by eliminating 50 points from our traditional 100-point system.

The 50 Point Project also addresses major inconsistencies that we discovered between teachers of the same subject - in the same school. I believe that this is a common issue in schools around the country, especially those with ineffective educators.

To learn more about the 50 Point Project, our journey, and some of our results... mark your calendar and join us for this online conversation to attempt to discover what is best for all students that we serve.
