Marzano’s Grading And Assessment That Work. Jana Hoover Stephanie Parker Apryle Douglas Jennifer Wilson Mark Jester. Chapter 3 – Grading.
“Teachers translate student response patterns into scores on a scale that represents progression of understanding and skill for a given measurement topic” (Marzano, 2006).
Grading based on a 4 point scale where a 4 would equate to 90-100, 3 = 80-90, 2 = 70, and 1 is in the 60s and 0 is lack of any skills even with teacher help.
The difference between a 0 and 1 is how much impact can be derived from teacher guided instruction to determine if the incorrect answers or blank answers can or cannot be answered with guidance.
Discussed impact of leveling questions.
Students have corrected tests and quizzes to their benefit.
There are still students who are not taking advantage of opportunity to correct.
What does this mean for us?
Report Cards should contain the following:
Standards tested during the grading period.
Key explaining what 0-4 grading represents
