Standards-Based Grading

According to Doug Reeves - (101 Questions and Answers about Standards, Assessment, and Accountability, 2004):

By comparing one child’s performance to a clear standard, parents, children and teachers all know precisely what is expected. Every time a student attempts a task, the performance is compared to the standard, not to other children’s performances. The most important advantages for children and families are fairness, clarity, and improved learning.”
