Fair Isn't Always Equal

Assessing and grading in the differentiated classroom

Differentiated instruction is an increasingly important component of modern teaching, but what happens when it comes to assessing and grading students? What`s fair and leads to real student learning?

The book covers high-level concepts from "rationale for differentiating assessment and grading" to "understanding mastery", as well as the more nitty-gritty details such as:

  • Grading
    • whether or not to incorporate effort, attendance, and behavior into academic grades
    • whether or not to grade homework
    • how to handle extra credit or bonus work
  • Assessment
    • principles of successful assessment
    • how to create useful and fair test questions
    • whether or not to allow students to re-do assignments for full credit

This thorough and practical guide also includes a special section for Teacher Leaders that explores ways to support and encourage colleagues.
