This conference is designed to help educators learn how to effectively develop, design, and implement a standards-based grading system that aligns with current instruction and assessment practices and supports the Iowa Core Curriculum as well as Iowa’s Competency-Based Education model. Current practitioners will share resources and practices that have led to successful implementation including:
- Ideas to support the communication of requirements, policies, and expectations established within the standards-based grading process
- Ways to develop consensus around assessing learning versus assessing behavior
- Plans that address the necessary components to support the implementation of standards-based grading.
Additional breakout sessions will be offered by area practitioners experienced in implementing SBG in their schools.
