Review my presentation about traditional grading vs. standards-based grading and write a blog post in which you discuss your opinions on grading. Be sure to address the following:
- What is your opinion of the current, traditional system? (numbers and letters, 100 point scale)
- Do you think that the current grading system accurately represents your learning and knowledge? Share an example of a personal experience.
- Do you think we should a) keep the current grading system, b) transfer to a standards-based grading system, or c) use some combination of both? Explain.
