Abstract

Standards-based grading systems are based on the idea that the grades a student receives should accurately reflect their mastery of the associated content, which in turn is related to standards. As Brookhart puts it, “grades are not about what students earn; they are about what students learn”. This action research project focuses on determining how students and teachers are reacting to the transition to a standards based grading system in Talmadge Middle School. Correlations between student homework productivity and their academic grades are found, as well as strategies teachers can use within their classroom to make the transition efficiently.
