Standards Based Grading and Grade Reporting in High Schools

How are high schools implementing standards based grading systems? What does this look like in grade reporting at the high school level? These are the questions that I would like to see answered here.

Mr. Grimshaw, I am in kirkwood and would be happy to show our system that we have k - 8. I also contacted Dr. Wipke, principal at Eureka High School. Hopefully he will be able to elaborate on where they are on their journey and see what's going on from there. I, along with one of my colleagues, handled professional development on SBG as a small private school made the transition from traditional to standards-based grading.

I have copies of the Kirkwood MS report cards. I would love to see Eureka's grade report. Perhaps you could send me a copy. Kirkwood appears to currently use a combination of the two. I'm very interested in how this gets implemented at the high school level. Our current system is antiquated and doesn't accurately reflect the mastery of the content. Grades should reflect what a kid knows and can demonstrate.

Eureka High School is starting the transition and discussion centered around standards based grading (SBG). They may be the only high school making that switch. I have been involved in the middle school transition to SBG. Aside from basing our standards on GLEs (grade level expectations) the proces of implementing this at the high school level shouldn't be much different.
