Anamosa High School has been leading the charge in Standard Based Grading for ACSD. Standards Based Grading is much different than traditional grading that has been going on in education for many years.
Earlier this week, I sat down with Darci Wagner, instructional coach, to discuss Standards Based Grading. We created the below podcast to answer some of the questions about the "what and why" of SBG.
Please have a listen to the podcast "A-Town Breakdown". If you find it helpful, please pass it along to someone who might benefit from a listen.
If you have questions about SBG, please feel free to contact Darci Wagner at 319-462-3594 ext. 1646
