Conducted March 21, 2007

Evaluating and grading student performance is a complex and controversial practice for all students, but is especially so for students receiving special education services. This Webinar describes common issues and concerns regarding grading students with exceptionalities, including increased risk of low or failing grades, and the indiscriminate use of special grading procedures that may not be useful. Strategies for assessing the accuracy, fairness, and usefulness of grades and grading systems are also described, as well as a process for making appropriate grading adaptations.
