Standards Based Grading Schemes

I’ve spent more time than seems reasonable reading and reading and reading about SBG (specifically SBG by physics teachers).

Shouts out to Kelly O’Shea and Frank Nochese whose work I stole from liberally:

Frank Noschese at Action-Reaction (https://fnoschese.wordpress.com/)

And for somebody gathering together great ideas, QuantumProgress’s Galas are wholly worth reading.

After absorbing all these fine bloggers had to offer and pouring over the links at their sites, I decided that I did not know whose SBG grading scheme (the process of taking standards and turning them into letter grades) I thought would work best.

But I’m an experimentalist and I have three classes. So I’m going to use a derivative of Kelly’s 5-6-9-10 method in one class and I’m going to use a derivative of Frank’s K.I.S.S.B.G in another, and a hybrid in the third.
