Grading Exceptional and Struggling Learners



September 2011 | 128 pages | Corwin
Students with disabilities and those who are English language learners often struggle in school and pose real challenges to teachers who need to communicate the degree of their learning on a report card.This practitioner-friendly book provides general education teachers and administrators with a clear, step-by-step process for assigning fair and meaningful grades to struggling students, including students with IEPs, those receiving intensive intervention through an RTI model, and ELLs. The book contains sample report cards for elementary and secondary levels, several example progress reports, and a graphic to illustrate the authors' original inclusive grading model.

"The model presented in this book is the best one I know for approaching the difficult task of grading exceptional and struggling learners. It makes sense, and it honors principles of learning, instruction, and validity of measurement. Examples show how the model applies to a variety of struggling students. The book is clear and readable. I recommend it for teachers at all levels."

"This new book represents a practical resource for all teachers and administrators whose goal is to provide appropriate and equitable assessment practices for students who may be at risk for academic failure. It is especially refreshing to see the way Lee Ann Jung and Thomas Guskey pay special attention to the fair treatment of English Language Learners included in this volume."
