Notes On the Use of Zero in Grading

 

CONCEPT:

 

My basic thought with this (and I think with others) is to provide a place to discuss various topics in education in order to assist other educators in any given situation or problem. However, I believe we should take that to the next level and anticipate how something like this may impact the educational world as a whole. In our drive to assist other members of this wiki, the discussions we have should be prepared as white papers and these could be published in professional journals or simply published via the internet.

 

GUIDELINES:

 

1) Used for discussion on various topics of educational importance

 

2) Basic decorum will be observed at all times

a) no ad hominem attacks

b) no political arguments

c) comments will not be deleted, but may be moderated (with the agreement of the poster)

 

3) Sources will be cited in an APA format.

 

4) Discussions will take place on a regular basis to be determined by a majority of the members

 

5) Discussion topics will be determined on a quarterly basis and announced prior to the quarter in order to permit members time to research if they so desire.

a) Quarters will begin in August

- Aug - Sep - Oct (SBG, syllabi, etc)

- Nov - Dec - Jan (school/district/classroom culture, discipline/classroom management, cultural proficiency/competence, achievement gap)

- Feb - Mar - Apr (Standards-Based Testing, NCLB, etc)

- May - Jun - Jul  (professional development, in-service, etc)

 

 

6) Transcripts of discussions will be saved in .pdf format and saved for any future use

 

7) Each discussion topic should consist of the following:

a) General topic or hypothesis

b) Specific questions or problems to be answered

c) End-state goals for a Position Paper

 

8) In other words: Each discussion should not just be an internal discussion but should be useful to educators as a whole.

 

9) Content of the discussion is available for use by all members and is covered under common-use license as defined in the Creative Common license available by clicking on the above logo.

 

10) After each discussion, a report will be prepared which will show if 7b was or was not answered and if 7c was met. At the next meeting, the report will be voted on and if passed it will be finalized. At that time, discussion can be shelved for later or further discussion can be scheduled for another time.

 

11) Scheduled Discussions will last no longer than one hour.

 

12) After initial discussions, topics may still be posted to and papers may be updated as needed.
