Description

Group work is a growing trend in schools, as educators seek more complex, more authentic assessment tasks and assign projects and presentations for students to work on together. Many teachers, though, are uncomfortable giving group grades, which may or may not actually reflect an individual student's learning. In Grading and Group Work: How Do I Assess Individual Learning When Students Work Together?, assessment expert Susan M. Brookhart offers practical advice, strategies and examples to help teachers understand the following:



  • What the differences are between group projects and cooperative learning

  • How to assess and report on (but not grade) learning skills and group interaction skills

  • How to assess and grade individual achievement of learning goals after group projects

  • Why having students work together is a good thing – but group grades are not



Grading and Group Work is part of the ASCD Arias series of publications providing concise answers to challenging questions in a convenient format that you can read in one sitting and immediately put into practice. Arias books are the next-generation, immediate-need resources for everyone committed to the success of each learner.
