Question

We are currently working to establish a grading policy in our district and have noted drastic differences among teachers and subjects in the number of grades assigned per grading period. What would you consider to be the minimal number of grades to assign per nine weeks? Also, what would you recommend as an optimal number of grades per each nine weeks to provide a true perspective of learning for students?

The minimal number would be 3 plus 1 or 2, the maximum 7 plus or minus 1 or 2.
