I’ll be off the grid for a couple of days, but was hoping to contribute something constructive prior to taking off.
Labels/categories/topics in a blog sidebar, although they may be a way to keep track of topical conversations, don’t go far enough. A search function also helps. (There’s probably an efficient Web 2.0 way to do it, like a topical aggregator, but it hasn’t touched my mind yet.) So this is an experiment, a “sticky” post. (I’ll figure a way to make it sticky!)
Eric, in Second Hand Thoughts, reinforced my desire to broaden and deepen the conversations on what the Exhausted Intern calls SBG or “standards-based grading,” aka, “grading for learning,” or “grading linked to standards.” (Eric has in mind an idea for focusing conversations that goes beyond what I’m hoping to do here.) Here goes…
So far, I’ve talked about SBG with the following folks who have “grading” listed on their topic sidebar…
…and folks who don’t have “grading” listed as a topic, but have addressed the issue in posts or “comments” either on RepairKit or their own blog:
This is also an open invitation to join the conversation.
If I left anyone out of this conversation, my sincere apology and please mention it in a comment to this post. I’ll cut and paste your link above.
My goal is to list, in one place, all of you with whom I exchange ideas about SBG. (If this is a dumb idea, or there’s a better way to do it, please tell me!)
