The future of grades and the impact on growth mindset
Imagine a future where students’ reports chronicle their progress against goals they set with their teacher. Is that likely? And if yes, how far off is it?
In this session we will look into the history of the traditional grading system, the purpose of assigning traditional grades to students and whether it correlates with student achievement.
We will then consider a growth mindset (Carol dweck and Jo Boaler), focusing on:
How to foster a growth mindset in mathematics classes
Whether the traditional summative grading (A-E) system allow students to develop a growth mindset
Finally we will look at how we can better assess students to encourage them to develop a growth mindset in mathematics classes and leave their fixed mindset behind.
