Assessment for Learning: Shifting Focus from Grades to Growth

[#quoteoftheday💬] “Success isn’t how far you got, but the distance you travelled from where you started.” - Steve Prefontaine.

💭#thinkwithme: So this is a big topic. To me, it reminds me of a discussion I had about #assessmentforlearning with a school owner in the #UAE.

They maintained that they wanted assessment to measure, focus on and reward the *improvement* of a child’s grades from one to the next… Instead of rewarding the overall higher grades, and focusing on how far every learner is from an ‘A*’.

Big topic - lots of nuance to it.

If you’re into #education and following along with the idea, what do you think? How would this work? I welcome and invite you to share your perspective on this.

💡To me, this quote is about: #education #fairness #learning #improvement #assessment #teaching #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment
