Question

Ken,

My district is moving towards standards based grading, no zeros, unlimited make-ups, etc. How would you propose that performing ensembles get students to attend performances since students are no longer held accountable through grades for performance attendance.

says:

Make attending a set number of performances a prerequisite for credit. For example, the best
musician gets an 'A' as a grade for Music but receives no credit because they did not attend
the required number of performances.
