When grades are accurate and fair, students and teachers will see immediate improvements in academic performance, student behavior, and attendance. But when schools cling to toxic grading practices that are demonstrably inaccurate and unfair, then failures persist. Douglas Reeves, the author of more than forty books and 100 articles on leadership and education, believes the choice is clear - and in this book, he argues for grading systems and feedback that have an immediate and positive impact on the performance of students, teachers, and leaders. Get answers to questions such as: What are grading policies about beyond student performance? How can grading policies help teachers collaborate to improve student outcomes? Why do grading policies among teachers vary so much? The author observes that in the context of grading, you will routinely see classes in which student backgrounds are the same, but one class has a 50% failure rate and another class in the same grade and same subject has a 10% failure rate. Almost always, the difference is not in the performance of the students but in the grading policies of the teachers. Join the author and explore how to improve achievement, discipline, and culture through Fearless Grading.
