Grades as Measurements

“…Learning is the goal. Grades exist simply to communicate the amount of learning.”

This is an interesting post written by Paul Cancellieri, a U.S. based middle school teacher, on SmartBlogs.com. Mr. Cancellieri’s article addresses the impact and importance placed on grades as measurements for students. He raises some very valid points about how grades are perceived, and offers valuable insight on how we can encourage students to “care about their own progress without rewards or consequences from anyone else.”
