A powerful model for helping struggling students succeed

How can you ensure that you are grading your exceptional students fairly? Teachers receive very little guidance for grading students with disabilities, English learners, and those receiving services through a response-to-intervention (RTI) process. This practitioner-friendly book provides an effective framework for assigning grades that are accurate, meaningful, and legally defensible. The authors’ easy-to-follow, five-step standards-based inclusive grading model helps teachers:


  • Determine appropriate expectations for each student
  • Understand the differences between accommodations and modifications
  • Grade based on modified expectations
  • Communicate the meaning of grades to students and their families

Industry Reviews

"The model presented in this book is the best one I know for approaching the difficult task of grading exceptional and struggling learners. It makes sense, and it honors principles of learning, instruction, and validity of measurement. Examples show how the model applies to a variety of struggling students. The book is clear and readable. I recommend it for teachers at all levels." -- Susan M. Brookhart, Education Consultant
"This new book represents a practical resource for all teachers and administrators whose goal is to provide appropriate and equitable assessment practices for students who may be at risk for academic failure. It is especially refreshing to see the way Lee Ann Jung and Thomas Guskey pay special attention to the fair treatment of English Language Learners included in this volume." -- Andrea Honigsfeld, Professorand Co-Authorof Collaboration and Co-Teaching
