Standards-Based Grading: A Collabrative Effort

After entering my second year of standards-based grading and coming into contact with some great minds through Twitter and the edublogosphere, I thought it would be a great idea to set up a place where we can share and critique all aspects of our standards-based assessment systems. This site will be open to contributors as well as the general readership for comments. I’ve found that most aspects of teaching can be greatly improved when collaboration takes place. And who doesn’t like some constructive feedback, right?

Contributors will be able to post about standards-based assessment in general, and will also be able to upload certain file types (i.e. PDF, doc, etc.) to share their specific standards-based creations.  This will be a work in progress, but the ball has to get rolling before it can pick up its steam.  I look forward to seeing some interesting and innovative ideas to make our assessment practices useful to both our students and ourselves.  As Nathan put it, I heart SBG.
