Here is an interview I participated in from CBC's The Current where we talked about abolishing grading from school.
Check out this page for all of the blog posts I've written about how and why we need to abolish grading.
Here are a couple posts that I would like to recommend:
Detoxing students from grade-use - Here's how my students responded to a learning environment with no grades.
Real assessment for learning - Students should experience their successes and failures not as reward and punishment but as information.
No Good Reason to Grade - here's why there really is no good reason to grade
Grading without Grading - here's how I abolished grading as much as I could even though I had to place a grade on the report card.
The day I abolished grading - here's how it happend for me
My de-grading philosophy Q & A - here's a quick Q & A where I answer some of the most common questions about how I assess with no grades.
If we don't grade, how will we know if children are learning - Real learning is found in children not data, and unfortunately, there is no appropriate shortcut to collecting or sharing this information.
