The Tweets below came from Missouri's Student First group today during a House Education Committee meeting today.
Our district, and many others, are at varying stages of implementing some sort of standards-based grading because the A-F grades don't provide a full picture. This became evident as we started providing more specific assessment data to parents. One of our parents came to us saying her daughter had an A in math but the skill specific data showed she was weak in measurement. The mom reported she thought everything was okay because of the A.
There is currently a wealth of information about every school and district available on our state website. Going to the A-F system pushed by ALEC is a step backward from the way we're moving in our classrooms.
