Timothy Quinn Publishes Text on Grades & Grading

Posted August, 2013

Timothy Quinn (current) has published On Grades and Grading: Supporting Student Learning through a More Transparent and Purposeful Use of Grades (R&L Education, July 2013).

Endorsed by Pat Bassett, former President of the National Association of Independent Schools, the text elucidates the true purpose of grading, its misuse, and strategies to re-align grading away from 'sorting' of students and back to providing data and feedback to students in service to their growth and progress along a learning continuum.
