Editorial Reviews


Grading and Learning challenges our ideas about grades and provides specific strategies for changing the present, outdated system of grading students. This resource should be required for every 21st century teacher, preservice and veteran. --Jody Sherriff, Northern California Regional Director, K 12 Alliance/WestEd, Santa Ana, California

Sue Brookhart says two important things about grading: It s not about grading. It s about the learning and If you have to do it, you might as well do it well. What makes her book so valuable is that she then shows in practical ways how teachers can make school about learning, not grading. She does this by providing twelve strategies that teachers should use to make grading and reporting accurately reflect student achievement. --Ken O Connor, Independent Consultant, Scarborough, Ontario, Canada

Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very helpful as I consider ways to assess student learning that really support learning, not just provide marks for a gradebook. Brookhart provides a blend of theory and practical suggestions for classroom teachers. I had checked this out of the library first, but decided I needed to own my own copy for continued reference.
