Is anyone using a standards based report card and rubric scoring?
I'm trying to determine what is the best suggestion for our teachers to use.
Currently, they do a standards based report card and link the sub-standards to the to an overall standard. This results in a report card with standards and then all the scores averaging to get the overall standard score (4-8 it is a letter grade).
Part of what they use is the weighting for categories - so assessments are a 75% or more category and then classwork/homework at 25%. But if they switch to a rubric scored gradebook, the weighting doesn't work. I understand that and they would have to use the summative/formative scale instead, which essentially does the same thing they are doing with categories.
I'm just wondering how the rubric really works for something like our setup -- sub standards on a scale 1-3 (we don't include 4/above mastery) and an overall standard of a letter grade?
Please help, I haven't been able to find anything very clear on this.
