Customer Reviews

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.

This book is an amazing resource for educators to navigate the world of meaningful assessments as we move away from grades and focus more on student growth. It’s well written and informative with terrific examples and insights on different forms of assessments and strategies to implement them. As one of the most knowledgeable educators on the topic of assessments, Starr does a great job of sharing her expertise in a step by step approach that any teacher can understand and use.
