If you're an ASCD member, you may have seen that this month's issue of Educational Leadership is devoted to grading practices. And Ye Olde Blog got itself a mention (as did my friend Kirk from Teach Science for All):
I have updated the grading wiki, in case you haven't visited in awhile. I loaded it up with more research, a section on policy, and a whole lot more. (And, thank you to the EL editor for giving me a "heads up" that company was coming so I could rebuild that site.)
If you're new to What It's Like on the Inside, thank you for joining me here. It's a space that I've used to chronicle my last seven years as an educator at the classroom, district, and state levels. Some of the content is science-related. Part of it is specific to teaching. There are rants and raves sprinkled about. I talk about being an EdTech skeptic while (currently) working in EdTech. And yes, there are a lot of posts on grading and assessment to explore. I also blog at Excel for Educators, which has a lot of nifty posts and tutorials on building and using gradebooks for standards-based grading. If you can't find something you like here, check out some of my suggestions on my blogroll.
You're most welcome to hang out and learn, reflect, and join the conversation. If you need a doggy bag, click the RSS button at the bottom of the sidebar and posts will be delivered to your virtual doorstep (I'm also on Twitter). Let me know if there's anything I can do to make your stay more comfortable. I'm happy you're here!
