    One thought on “Elements of Grading: A Guide to Effective Practice”

    1. I m glad I read Douglas Reeves s Elements of Grading Reeves has thought deeply about grading processes and engagingly articulates his ideas and attitudes in this brief book s pages.Perhaps the most controversial aspect of Reeves s thinking is the no zero policy, which says that a zero is mathematically brutal when using a percentage based grading scale, not to mention that zeros are virtually always an inaccurate representation of student learning If a student cannot or does not prove learning, [...]

    2. A quick read on the topic of grading I m not sure I agreed with the author on all principles, but this book got me thinking a lot about my grading philosophies and practices.

    3. The key question that Doug Reeves addresses in Elements of Grading is as follows How can we make grading systems accurate, fair, specific, and timely Before answering this question, Reeves establishes an important premise The primary purpose of grading is feedback to improve student achievement.Reeves begins his inquiry by discussing is what he terms the grading debate that is, the distorted perceptions of some educators about the purpose of grading and their subsequent inaccurate, unfair, and n [...]

    4. Reeves is a major thinker in the school reform effort His work in this instance should be the focal point of a long discussion before every faculty in the nation s schools Surely, not everyone will warm to the reform it calls for But anyone who does will find students eager and able to succeed, and a school community capable of meeting it s promise.

    5. This book helped me wrap my brain around the no zero philosphy of grading As an educator and one for whom math was never a strong point I needed to make a shift in my thinking that grades have to be on a 100 point scale and how that is so different from the A,B,C,D,F scale that so many schools use.

    6. It was a book that made you think about how you grade Grading according to the standards is important, but there are many variables in grading that way This book had many answers, but not all Grading is subjective no matter what.

    7. Good, fairly quick read on standards based grading Gets down to the nitty gritty about questioning current grading practices and suggestions for improvement in a readable direct fashion.
