In the bestselling Hacking Assessment, award-winning teacher and world-renowned formative assessment expert Starr Sackstein unravels one of education’s oldest mysteries: How to assess learning without grades – even in a school that uses numbers, letters, GPAs, and report cards. While many educators can only muse about the possibility of a world without grades, teachers like Sackstein are reimagining education. In this unique, eagerly-anticipated book, Sackstein shows you exactly how to create a remarkable no-grades classroom like hers, a vibrant place where students grow, share, thrive, and become independent learners who never ask, “What’s this worth?”
“The beauty of the book is that it is not an empty argument against grades–but rather filled with valuable alternatives that are practical and will help to refocus the classroom on what matters most.” — Adam Bellow, White House Presidential Innovation Fellow
This is an awesome book full of suggestions and implementation strategies for how to go gradeless. Perfect for setting up a project-based, reflection-based, type of classroom. Suggestions do seemed geared more towards middle and high school teachers, which I am not, but I was still very pleased.
