We're really struggling with how to track students' progress. When we enter grades into our online grading system we'll only enter the number for the whole standard. So a quiz early in the unit might only assess some skills so the maximum score will be a 2. Later in the unit when the maximum score will be a 3, we won't have a way to record in the online grading system which skills a student mastered if they don't reach a 3. But if kids need to do retakes we need some way to track what skills they need to provide evidence for.
Options we've considered:
- paper copies of proficiency scales, highlight each skill they master, show them to students but keep them in the room (binder or crate of hanging file folders)
- paper copies of proficiency scales, highlight each skill they master, give them to students and also track in a spreadsheet
- start using google classroom, digitally highlight proficiency scales (there's apparently a way to attach rubrics to assignments?) so student and teacher can see
Has anyone done standards based grading like this before? Any suggestions?
