Question

Starting to implementing standards based grading...teachers are concerned about too many "data points/standards to measure" and the sacrifice of assessment taking up teaching time. Any advice on how to present this in a new light, articles that specifically address the imporance of using assessments to determine student progress toward standards.

says:

One of the best ways to do this is the approach recommended by Guskey and Bailey
("Developing Standards-Based Report Cards," Corwin, 2010, p. 43 ) who make the
distinction between “curriculum standards” (that are many and detailed and frequently
expressed in “educator language”) and “reporting standards” (that are few and broader and
should be expressed in parent- friendly language). The reporting standards are also the
grading standards and can and should be a manageable number for each subject.
