The quality of feedback students receive from their teachers is one of the most important factors in improving learning.

In addressing these four essential criteria, Elements of Grading does not offer an ultimate answer or perfect system but shows how to begin a constructive, evidence-based conversation about improving grading practices. The second edition of Elements of Grading features a significant amount of new content, including how the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and new technologies impact grading practices and systems. It promotes a new conversation about grading practices, as evidence is clearly not enough to change opinions and promote change. -- Provided by publisher

Finding your leadership focus : what matters most for student results by Douglas B Reeves( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his new book, author and international keynoter Douglas Reeves addresses a major challenge faced by today's school leaders: an ever-growing load of programs and initiatives. Reeves contends that program overload not only taxes leadership resources, but actually hurts rather than improves student performance. Drawing on recent research findings, this book shows how leaders can pare down from a proliferation of initiatives to determine what is truly most important based on their local concerns, challenges, populations, and other school factors. Identifying a specific set of leadership practices that are more strongly associated with improvements in student achievement, Reeves provides explicit guidelines for how school leaders can improve their most critical leadership decisions by simultaneously engaging in three essential strategies: monitoring teaching and leadership practices, building high degrees of efficacy among staff members, and focusing on a smaller number of priorities. "Finding Your Leadership Focus" is essential reading for new and veteran principals, teacher leaders, and plc book study groups. Book features include: (1) Practical guidance to help school leaders at every level to focus on what is most important and to assess their progress; (2) Analysis correlating three years of student achievement data and specific school leadership practices; (3) Online video conference support by Douglas Reeves for book study groups and graduate classes who use this book; and (4) Online downloads.
