Question

Is weighting standards within your grade book a key component to
standards based grading? We have a couple of teachers pushing
standards based grading, but are presenting it as a no zero policy
with limitless opportunities to make up work. With all class work
linking to a standard of course, but all assignments are thrown
together so you could have 10 assignments for 1 standard and 2 for the
another.

says:

To make good judgments on how students are achieving on a standard you should have at
least three pieces of evidence on each standard but you don't need more than 5 or 6.
Standards-based grading requires assessment planning that achieves that.
