Your Implementation Strategy for Proficiency-Based Instruction

Only by shifting away from a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning can every student achieve self-efficacy and true success in the classroom. In this resource, authors Eric Twadell, Mark Onuscheck, Anthony R. Reibel, and Troy Gobble provide educators with a comprehensive strategy implementation process for proficiency-based instruction.

Proficiency-Based Grading in the Content Areas provides educators with relevant and actionable steps to help shift their grading practices from a transactional model to one that focuses on learning outcomes. No other book provides content-specific examples of putting proficiency-based grading into practice in ways that help build student efficacy. This book should be required reading for any high school teacher looking to revolutionize the classroom.”

Andrew Jones, director of curriculum, Mill River Unified Union School District, Vermont

“Figuring out how to use assessment to help students learn is a powerful process. At award-winning Adlai E. Stevenson High School, teachers work in teams, administrators are in the loop, and students are the focus. Proficiency-Based Grading in the Content Areas offers a comprehensive, methodical, and compassionate approach to systemic improvement of grading practices.”

Jeanetta Jones Miller, retired teacher and department head, Newtown Public School District, author, A Better Grading System: Standards-Based, Student Centered
