Proficiency-Based Grading in the Content Areas

No matter the content area or grade level, proficiency-based grading puts student growth at the heart of the classroom. Designed for content-area teachers and administrators, Proficiency-Based Grading in the Content Areas details how to implement evidence-based grading and maintain its effectiveness over time. This book equips any educator—from technical to fine arts—with the tools to make this shift.

Use proficiency-based grading (also known as evidence-based grading) to drive student success:

  • Become familiar with the basic concepts and essential decisions of evidence-based grading that apply to all content areas.
  • Study individual-level and institutional-level grading decisions and how they differ from each other.
  • Become familiar with the steps, paradigm shifts, and pedagogy necessary to implement proficiency-based grading in a particular content area.
  • Study the ways proficiency-based grading differs from content area to content area and the unique benefits it offers to each.
  • Follow a structure that mirrors flow psychology and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s five stages of creativity.
