There have been a couple threads on this, but I’d like to revive this topic and ask a couple specific questions. If you have input on any of these questions, I’d love to hear your responses!
- What was the grade breakdown in your class? Glancing over the lessons, it’s clear that performance tasks will be a huge part of my grading system, but what else?
Right now I’m thinking…
Practice performance tasks
AP-style multiple choice question quizzes
Daily classwork assignments
Homework assignments (non-daily)
How did you grade the performance tasks? How did you have students submit them? Is there a CollegeBoard rubric we can base grading off of?
Did you assign homework? If so, was it daily? Weekly? As you thought of a worthwhile assignment? What was the nature of most of the assignments?
How often did you use/grade the questions built into the modules at Code.org? If so, how did you grade them? (I’m a little pressed for time, so I’m not sure how often I will be able to use them, but like the idea of having them as a classwork grade.)
Did you give tests or quizzes? If so, how often, and where did you get your questions?
Does anyone know off the top of their head many of the modules have AP-style questions built into them? I’d like to use those as assessment (quiz?) grades at every opportunity possible (my students have very little experience with AP-style questions).
Do you think it’s worth having another class website through something like Google Classroom, or did you do all of your classroom work through the Code.org site?
Thank you so much!
