Dealing with the fear of being a boring teacher.


Standards-Based Grading

Sadly, my blog got hacked and all of my image assets were destroyed. Back up yo stuff, folks.

I no longer practice SBG in the classroom sense, although Iowa BIG is standards-based, because, um, that’s how schools should work. I also no longer believe in giving grades, but these posts are a great place to start down that rabbit hole.

Standards-Based Grading is a technique devoted to giving students formative control over their own progress (and grade). It requires, at least, a fundamental change in the behavior of your grade book, but I’ll let you read about that. I’ve written about implementing SBG in specific disciplines.
