A must read for anyone looking to gain further insight into effective grading practices. Dave not only provides a solid direction on how to navigate through changing grading practices, he also provides authentic examples of the challenges that often arise while doing so. A very accurate picture is provided so a solid understanding can be had about why grading practices need to shift, what the process in doing so truly entails, and suggestions to support success in change and implementation.

Dave's book provides great perspective on the why and how behind changing grading practices. While the process will often encounter barriers, as Dave authentically articulates throughout his book, the equity it brings to grading for students is imperative and necessary if grades are truly going to represent an indication of student mastery against cartneared objectives. An excellent resource for anyone in education.
