Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595316018, Paperback)

In the past decade, an unprecedented trend toward accountability has emerged in American public education. With the advent of computerized grading, stakeholders often have instant access to student grades. Consequently, teacher grading practices are under intense scrutiny. Since 2004, Truth in Grading has been helping schools avoid problems and potentially serious consequences that can result from flawed or careless assessment practices. A practical guide, Truth in Grading assists educators in developing and improving learning assessment practices.

“As our state moves forward with the implementation of rigorous, standards-based curriculum, it is critical that a discussion of the purpose and process of grading and assessment take place. Truth in Grading provided the catalyst for our conversation in Paulding County.”

–Trudy Sowar, Superintendent, Paulding County School District, Georgia

Truth in Grading is a great professional tool for any staff ready to examine the teaching profession's dark little secrets with regard to ineffective or inaccurate grading practices. It masterfully examines this issue from both teacher and administrator points-of-view. Common problems with current practice are clearly outlined, and the foundation for teachers and administrators to create their own applicable solutions are provided.”

–Susan M. White, Principal, Cedar Hill Elementary, Gwinnett County, Georgia

“With competition for slots in American universities increasing, the examination of how to evaluate student effort and work should be thoughtfully reconsidered by every teacher. As a veteran teacher, I found that Truth in Grading presented excellent questions and ideas to be pondered. Since educators are about teaching, learning, and what is best for students, this topic deserves a more careful examination. For those who want to ensure fair and accurate evaluations for every student, Truth in Grading is a must read!”

–Michael Cheatham, Middle School Teacher
