Going Gradeless: Featuring David Frangiosa

Aspire to Lead. David Frangiosa, Joshua Stamper, Going Gradeless

This week’s guest, David Frangiosa, shares how he used multiple grading procedures to discover a process that revolutionized his classroom and shifted the focus to learning, which was going gradeless. We dive into this structure of feedback, student self pacing, and the misconceptions of this system.

  • Utilizing an Accountability Checklist 
  • The differences of going gradeless vs. Standards Based Grading
  • And his book, Going Gradeless: Shifting the Focus to Student Learning
