Our Standards-Based Grading Philosophy
As seasoned educators with extensive backgrounds in standards-based grading, we know the power of engaging students with purposeful planning and authentic learning experiences. Our Curriculum Planning Tool helps teachers to define how their courses work in a more meaningful way and immerses them in the standards-based grading philosophy.
Our gradebook clarifies learning objectives, makes teaching decisions more intentional and the curriculum more cohesive. It eliminates busywork for students and multiplies the ways for them to demonstrate knowledge.
JumpRope’s tools empower teachers to do what they do best while collecting meaningful data and providing specific feedback to learners.
