I am back for part 3 of this standards based grading adventure (click here to read part 1 and click here to read part 2). Not only am I back to share the “HOW?” of standards based grading, but I’m also here to share with you an incredible reporting tool I created that I am so excited about!
Let’s get down to business!
I have broken down the how into four easy-to-understand parts:
The tough job of understanding what the standards say has been done for you. Click here to check out my assessments.
The next part is planning, creating, and implementing a curriculum:
The third part is assessments:
How awesome is this page below?! You can keep track of all pre-assessments, assignments, formative assessments, and post-assessments for each student. You can also check a color coded box next to each assignment/assessment to quickly see how the student is doing with mastery of the standard, or to quickly place them in small groups for any intervention, re-teaching, or enrichment groups.
If you want to type the above page instead, I have it set up so that you can just click one of the colored boxes and it automatically puts in a check mark for you!
You can then take the above information, and use the color coded boxes to form your groups using this page below. These pages are also color coded by domain, and have the standards written on top. I plan to use these when forming my small groups for instruction or RTI groups. I typically have so many students going in and out of my class for interventions throughout the day, and so many adults that I need to communicate this info to, so this will help all of us stay organized.
Remember that all of these pages are text editable too. This means you just open up the PDF file and type away!
The pages I have shown you are only a small sample of these 800+ page packs! Click here to download a preview of my 3rd grade pack, click here to download the preview of my 4th grade pack and click here to download the preview of my 5th grade pack in order to see more of what’s included!
