Put the focus back on student learning

Student learning is complex. Forefront handles the complexity of standards-based grading to transform the information already in your K-8 classrooms into meaningful pictures of student learning.

The pandemic revealed the 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.

focus on growth

The current evidence of learning is the most important. We put recent assessment results in the spotlight. This helps emphasize student growth and progress.
