Handicap grading guidelines for distance learning
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – California students in distance learning may soon be graded on the learning they do, not when they do it.
State School Superintendent Tony Thurmond has released guidelines that address grading student progress and the ongoing issue of equity in distance and hybrid learning environments.
“We should reflect on how student progress is measured and consider how to shift to more equitable grading systems and policies, whether the instructional setting is in-person, virtual, or hybrid,” Thurmond said.
The new guidance replaces grading quantities, such as the extent to which students have completed assignments, with grading qualities in student work that reflect students’ current achievement level.
