The 6th (First Virtual) Drake University Standards-Based Grading Symposium


Featuring Rick Wormeli with special guest Ken O'Connor (The Grade Doctor)


Join us virtually for a candid and compelling look at what standards-based assessment and grading will look like as schools and classrooms navigate the post-pandemic world. We will explore what it means to be truly evidence-based in assessing and reporting students' achievements regarding standards and learner outcomes. We will address the biggest concerns in grading today: averaging, zeroes on the 100-point scale, re-do's, percentages, grading scales, late work, valedictorian, what colleges are seeking, ethics/integrity, marking homework, extra credit, grade book and report card designs, formative vs. summative assessments, what constitutes evidence of mastery, reporting behavior/effort/character elements, disaggregation, and much more. Don't miss this chance to confront misconceptions and make the most of students' learning!



8:30am - 11:30am Rick Wormeli Keynote Session: Post-pandemic grading: What will your grading look like moving forward?

11:30 - 12:30 lunch (no meetings during the lunch hour)

12:30 - 1:30 Ken O' Connor (aka The GRADE Doctor) will join us for a special Q and A session from the audience. Bring your questions!



Zoom link will be sent within one hour of the symposium opening.
