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 and refinements on their assignments. Provide meaningful feedback. These strategies emphasize that learning is a process.
The most recent evidence of learning is the most accurate and most valuable. In contrast to traditional grading systems which allot weights by assessment type, Forefront algorithm applies greater weight to the most recent evidence and puts growth into focus.
Align evidence of student learning directly with your standards-based grading system. Provide teachers with direct access to a full body of evidence as they make grading decisions. Enhance consistency and reliability while saving teachers time and helping them feel confident in their grading practices.
Align individual tasks with specific learning outcomes.
Forefront is the only solution designed to systematically capture and analyze curriculum-embedded assessment data. Collect your assessment results and elevate them district-wide to transform standards-based grading, inform PLCs, and improve student learning across your schools.
