This is awesome! I love Cornally’s frankness and his perspective. I feel lucky to have someone working on Standards Based Grading in a way that I expect will one day be super-useful for my culinary arts students, as well. I am saddened by the fact that I haven’t been able to find someone in the Career Technical Ed field who is looking at assessments and grading in a similar way. This seems ironic considering how long CTE has been competency based, but perhaps the real issue has been an inability to co-ordinate Vocational’s standards based approach with a regular school assessment system. I started learning about SBG this last summer because I wanted to have one gradebook instead of two. Perhaps with the help of the SBG twitter posse @ThinkThankThunk, @ActiveGrade, @dandersod, @rileylark, @ddmeyer, @fnoschese, @sarcasymptote,@cheesemonkeysf, @mathhombre this will become a reality one day.
