There are deeply entrenched inequities in our grading systems
Implement Equitable Grading Practices
Standards-based grading language describes learning as a process and that students are all growing. Grades should indicate student performance relative to learning expectations. Forefront helps you collect and visualize this evidence to describe a student's journey along learning progressions.
Focus on learning
Students need multiple opportunities to demonstrate understanding. Allow students to provide additional revisions on their assignments and provide meaningful feedback.
