  7. Michele – COLUMBUS CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT (verified owner)

    Outstanding! Very helpful. I will change my some of my instructional practices b/c of this experience.

  8. Johnathan – MARION CITY (verified owner)

    The course is well done. I am not in total agreeance with all of the grading strategies in preparing students for college or the “real world”. Grading practice to some extent allows students to enrich themselves and gives them to deserved calculation for the work they have put in. It also shows student accountability, time management/budgeting time, and responsibility for doing the necessary steps to master or even work beyond mastery.

  9. Cynthia – WORTHINGTON CITY (verified owner)

    Good ideas

  10. Brian – COLUMBUS CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT (verified owner)

    They did a solid job of presenting the reward for the potential of using a mastery grading system in conjunction with differentiated instruction. I would have liked to see a more specific handling of what mastery standards might look like. Practically most teachers have more than a handful of standards and most learning involves multiple standards working interchangeable which they did not address.
