Over the past few years I have really begun to move to a standard based classroom. The idea of moving away from grades and focusing on learning and not the letter grade really appeals to me. I also have found that the students really do respond well to standard based grading. My dilemma is that my district works on a traditional grading system. I am asking for help here! Is their a way to combine these two styles of grading? My hope is to find a temporary solution until I can convince my district to switch to standard based grading.
