The “Grade Doctor” was in; now, he’s online.
Patrons who couldn’t make it to the July 31, 2014 free workshop by Ken O’Connor now can view the nationally known grading expert’s presentation at iTunes U.
O’Connor – otherwise known as “The Grade Doctor” – offered a free workshop titled “Changing Assessment and Grading: What and Why?” for parents, patrons and guardians of children in Canyons schools. O’Connor also conducted separate workshops with Canyons District principals and administrators during his visit to the District.
The workshop is aimed at assisting the Canyons community as schools move forward with discussions about student-achievement data and why grades need to represent a student’s actual level of learning.
