WDMCS Board of Education Studies “Rethinking Grading”
The West Des Moines Community Schools Board of Education will be holding a book study of Dr. Cathy Vatterott’s “Rethinking Grading” during two special workshop meetings on Feb. 15 and 29. The book examines traditional grading practices and offers a new paradigm for grading that focuses on student mastery of content and authentically reflecting student progress and learning.
Researching and studying effective grading practices is part of the district’s strategic plan. For more information about the plan, visit www.wdmcs.org/district/mission-vision-goals-actions-plans/.
