Re: Grading in elementary


Date: Sun Feb 01 2004 - 06:36:57 PST

I might add to the first post from me regarding this topic:

As I add images to a mini portfolio I can see at a glance if a child is
behind, not working to their capacity, exhibiting growth in skills, not
trying, etc. If a child is ever in need of a midquarter comment, I will
know it instantly and can dash one off as I enter work on the table at
that time. This has cut down on the time it takes me to write commets I
don't have to go "looking" for anything...I can just sit and write. I
am a FAST typist, and I am also very fast at working up images now for
my site. Practice over time does that. It's easier for me to type and
shoot a photo than it is for me to keep a log of notes daily. I don't
have to do that anyway, at least no one at my school has ever told me
that I need to do anything different in art than I am doing now for
grades. It works for me!
