Grading is the most emotionally-charged topic in education today. Bring it up, and you're likely to feel stuck with no one around you willing to change their mind, and everyone trying to shout their opinion the loudest. And yet, it is imperative that leaders inspire rethinking if they hope to support sustainable change and honor decades of research into using assessment for learning.

In this session, you'll learn practical moves to inspire rethinking about grading in yourself, in someone else (even the most stubborn resistor), and in your wider community.
