Day 16: Introducing SBG

All four of my classes today were introduced to my flavour of Standards Based Grading.  The grade 11 students were pretty interested in it, whereas the grade 8 students didn’t seem to care one way or the other.  That doesn’t surprise me, as I’ve noticed that the younger the students, the less they care about how their grade is calculated or how learning is measured.  The 8’s are still fairly bright eyed and bushy-tailed, and are genuinely interested in what we’re doing and not what their grade is.

Our learning objectives will be graded on a scale of 1 to 3, where their mark will ultimately be calculated from the final grade they achieve.
