Presented by: Ken O'Connor
Monday, November 20, 2017 | 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Location:
Central Alberta Regional Consortium 8 Page Avenue, Red Deer, AB
About the Session:

Grades can provide important information for students, parents, teachers, and others but to be useful grades must be meaningful, accurate, consistent, and supportive of learning. Sometimes grades are "broken" and do not meet these standards. The session will begin with introductory ideas and activities to activate thinking about grading, including the Seven P’s of grading (Procedures, Policy, Practices, Purpose, Principles, Practicality and Principals/School leaders). The main section of the workshop will be the presentation and discussion of eight guidelines for grading, guidelines that will make grades accurate, meaningful, consistent and supportive of learning. Each guideline will be introduced and then there will be opportunity for questions and discussion about the guideline and how it works in Power Teacher Pro.
