More options for standards grading
In grade book, I would like to have standards based grading. Instead of the traditional A,B,C for grades, it would be a 4 point scale. Overall grade would be calculated based on median of recent grades, decaying weights, power law, mode of recent scores, highest, or average of recent scores (these would be options in a drop down box so the teacher could decide)
Left three vote there because that was the very purpose I got onto Planbook for standards-based grading! Other options are expensive, or too complicated. Since we are already inputing standard grades per assignment, do allow us to generate a summative average. If changing alphabetical grades to numerical 4 point scale takes time, perhaps a good interim option is to report the mode — most frequently occurring alphabetical grade for each standard.
