PhysicsTeachersNYC is going to be hosting a workshop on standards-based grading in physics and chemistry on Saturnday September 22 from 10:00-1:00. I will be on a panel with Seth Guinals-Kupperman, and Paul Bianchi talking about how we implement SBG in our classes and helping participants figure out how to start implementing it in theirs. If you’re […]

In my last posts I wrote about the organization of the standards-based assessment system I am going to be using in my Physics class this year.  In this post I’m going to share how I plan to turn 50+ standards-based levels into a report card grade.  (I should thank Kelly O’Shea. Most of the ideas […]

I’ve spent much of the last month reading every blog post on standards-based grading in Physics that I could find (of which I think Kelly O’Shea’s Blog is the best) in order to put together a system that will work for my physics class  this year and, hopefully, serve as a model for the science and […]

…kind of. The plan was that all QSI teachers would transition to standards-based grading via ActiveGrade this September, but due to several converging issues we decided to go with a scaled-down pilot group of about ten teachers.  The hope is that everyone else will see how awesome standards-based grading is and be begging to get […]
