August 10, 2021 Roundtable - Implementing Standards-Based Grading in Ensemble Classes
Roundtable – A conference for discussion or deliberation by several participants; everyone has an equal chance to express ideas.

DATE and TIME: Tuesday, August 10 (9:30 – 11:30 am)

LOCATION: This is an online meeting. The meeting link will be emailed prior to the Roundtable.

Here is an opportunity to participate in a Roundtable discussion–to think aloud with other ensemble directors about a framework for communicating student achievement to students and their families known as standards-based grading, standards-referenced grading, proficiency or competency grading.

What questions do you want to ask others?
     • What does the music report card look like (i.e., multiple statements, letters or numbers)?
     • How do you report effort/behavior/participation?
     • How do you manage multiple opportunities for students to demonstrate learning?
     • How do you use formative and summative assessments?
     • How do you give students individual feedback?
     • If students “Meet Standard” right away what do you do?
     • Does your district use proficiency or competency scales?
     • Other?

What experiences could you share?
     • The music report card used in my classes
     • How I report effort/behavior/participation
     • How I manage multiple opportunities
     • How I manage formative and summative assessments
     • How I give students individual feedback
     • Sample checklists or rubrics
     • Sample proficiency or competency scales
     • Other?
     • At this time I don't have anything to formally share

This Roundtable is facilitated by Dr. Wendy Barden, Music Education Specialist at Perpich Center. Wendy taught with standards-based grading for 8 years and has continued to study—and advocate for—this framework. This just means Wendy has ideas to add to the conversation from personal experience.
     • A certificate for 2 CEUs will be available at the end of the session.
     • There is no cost to participate.
