The Case Against Grades


ASCD's current issue of Educational Leadership Journal features an entire issue on grading. Among the journal's articles is Alfie Kohn's The Case Against Grades. I was pretty excited to see Kohn cite some of the work I have done on abolishing grading in an effort to improve formative assessment.

You can view a list of educators and their stories about how they abolished grading in favor of more supportive assessment practices at The Grading Moratorium, and you can read about how to join The Grading Moratorum here.
