Updates to the Website:
April 7, 2015 – We’ve made some changes to Shifts C and D to streamline expectations for participants. We have also added a page describing schools that are participating in this work.
March 11,2015 – Greetings Fellow Learners! Thank you Poly and ALC teachers for your engagement and your feedback about the site. You are pioneers within LAUSD in wanting to learn about effective grading practices, and your practices will help your students be better prepared to graduate and be successful. We’ve made some significant edits/additions to the site:
- In Shift A, we’ve added some additional references that connect to the historical origins of grading practices.
- We’ve added steps to Shifts C and D–but remember that you have to progress through Shifts A and B and complete Step 7 of Shift B before accessing Shift C.
- We’ve gotten into the habit of making sure we’re underlining all of the hyperlinked references.
As always, please send us feedback so we can continue to improve the site!
