Note that inclusion in these averages does not imply that an institution has significant inflation.

In the process of writing that article, I collected data on trends in grading from about 30 colleges and universities.
For example, before students can explain some of the key causes of the American Revolution, students need to identify and describe these causes. Before students can construct a graph showing the relationship between two variables, students need a working understanding of key terms like dependent variable and independent variable.
In other words, each question in a sequence is important, and eliminating steps from a sequence can inhibit student understanding.
This session focuses on research-based strategies for sequencing questions effectively. Sessions can be tailored to specific grade-levels and subject areas, or sessions can span multiple grade-levels and subject areas to facilitate vertical and cross-curricular alignment of these strategies.
This collaboration starts with teacher professionals and GCA co-creating standards-based text-dependent writing lessons that integrate reading, discussion, and writing. What follows is co-teaching of this lesson with students.
These sessions are highly customized. Teacher professionals build capacity in developing and facilitating text-dependent writing lessons. Students develop greater skill and confidence in text-dependent writing.
GCA learns from both the teacher professionals and the students! From this workshop, teachers can expect: Scoring text-dependent writing with consistency and accuracy, according to standards-based rubrics, can be a challenge. Because accurate scoring is required to develop a valid understanding of student achievement, it is important to address these challenges.
GCA has deep expertise scoring text-dependent writing in multiple content areas, and offers practical, evidence-based professional learning on scoring text-dependent writing with accuracy and consistency.
This professional learning is particularly recommended for districts who observe local scoring of student responses to text-dependent writing questions found on district-level benchmark assessments. District personnel who participate in this professional learning norm their scoring to promote consistency and accuracy, the effect of which is more valid results.
As we begin implementation of the new Georgia Milestones, this is a perfect time to also evaluate the status of district, school, and classroom assessments.

The audit is organized around three guiding questions: Where are we going? Where are we now?Turnitin provides instructors with the tools to prevent plagiarism, engage students in the writing process, and provide personalized feedback.
Georgia Milestones combines the subject matter found on the reading CRCT, ELA CRCT, and writing assessment into one test, the language arts exam.
