I'm in the midst of rolling out a more "standards-based" way of reporting grades to my high school math students and their parents. The issue I'm running in to is that it seems counterproductive. A fellow edublogger said it well here. How should formative assessments be handled when students/parents are used to all homework/assignments/projects/quizzes/tests being recorded via student information systems (i.e. PowerSchool, Infinite Campus, JMC)? I'm hoping some in the Classroom 2.0 community might have some experience in this area. Anyone?

You might have a look at Mastery Learning that Works which is a podcast of how two chemistry teachers approach a "mastery" kind of grading system. I'm working on ways to adapt their assessment techniques into my classes so that I can get away from assignment-based grades and move to learning-based grades. Keep posting your experiences as you go, since a lot of teachers are interested in what you are trying.
