Teacher assessment and grading are two critical components of education. Done correctly, assessments yield valuable information for students, teachers, and administrators. When done incorrectly, assessments can produce frustration and low morale for all parties. Ensure that your school or system is increasing student learning by administering effective differentiated instruction assessments and using research-based grading techniques. Our No Child Left Behind assessment and grading resources provide comprehensive training and information on a variety of research-based, classroom-proven techniques, strategies, and methods. Like all our resources, these are designed to increase student learning, drive implementation, and build internal capacity.
