Question

Hello Ken, we have teachers using PTGB and entering achievment level scores , 1-4 at the specific outocme level. They use student view to review achievement- all good! But, then they have to produce a percentage grade- which right now we will not be moving away from.DO you have some suggestions that we can use to assist teachers in determining a percentage grade? Some are creating a report and pasting it into excel to calculate a percentage grade. IS this appropriate?It is our reality! Your thoughts would be appreciated on this topic!

With the unfortunate reality of percentage grades I think what you have to do is develop logic
rules - for example, all 4's - 100%; almost all 4's, nothing below a 3 - 95%; and so on. Not
ideal but at least you are outcomes-based for part of the process.

Have you seen any good samples from other districts that have developed some Logic Rules? I
would appreciate any information on this!
Thanks Ken!

The best ones I have seen are in Judy Arter and Jay Mctighe's book on rubrics.
