Topics include: formative versus summative assessments, zeroes versus 50s, grading late work, handling retakes and redoes, identifying acceptable evidence of standards in students' work, grading homework, incorporating effort or not, grading students in inclusion classes, setting up the grade books, report card design, 100 versus. 4.0 scales, and much more. Read on.
