Assessment and Grading Guidebook

The Office for Schools in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is pleased to provide you with this Assessment and Grading Guidebook, compiled by a designated group of teachers and principals in the archdiocese, specifically for the purpose of informing and improving assessment practices in our elementary and secondary schools.

This single guide includes the following key components related to appropriate assessment and grading practices:

  • Questions to drive implementation  for principals and teachers to assist them in effectively managing the change process
  • Research and rationale resources  for principals and instructional leaders that align with the Archdiocese Milwaukee Assessment and Grading Beliefs and Practices and the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Schools
  • Implementation tools for principals and teachers to align assessment and grading practices in a standards-based learning environment
  • Frequently Asked Questions  to assist in the change process

The interactive nature of this document allows schools to insert additional relevant materials and resources as they are discovered or developed at the local level. 

Thank you for your thoughtful utilization and integration of these assessment and grading resources for the ongoing improvement of student learning in our schools.
