Learning is more than a letter.

 
Receiving a “C” in math tells a student very little, and yet letter grades are often the only information students receive about their progress. Feedback is essential for learning, but our traditional feedback loops are not designed to give children and their families the information they need to grow and excel. Let's explore how we can reimagine grading practices and empower learners with a deep understanding of where they are and where they're going.
