Ok, so over the years I have had tons of conversations with educators about the topic of Standard Based Grading or SBG. The topic intrigues me and something I decided I would forge ahead with this year. A natural first place for me to start was with Google Sheets… Wait what? Yeah, if you know me then you know I use sheets for just about anything. Look around here and you will find many examples of ways in which I use Google sheets within my class. Before I went off to build my own sheet I did some digging around and found some great educators who already had been making headway on the idea of making a SBG Google sheet.
The collaboration includes these four fabulous teachers:
All of these guys and myself spent time coding, thinking and building the most user friendly and most importantly, efficient standard based grading sheet I know. It is our hope that you take these sheets, use them, add to them if you can and let us know what you think. I can’t help but see the true power of a strong PLN. This unstructured, collaboration only came about because we shared what we were doing together.
This spreadsheet is a powerful LMS, or learning management system, with features to comment to each student, leave feed back per assignment, and even provide links to activities for your course. Below, there is a link to make your own copy and a video tutorial discussing most of the features. Enjoy!
Please let’s us hear from you about how you are using SBG in your classroom! Might this SBG sheet help you!
