About the Author:

Ken O’Connor is an independent classroom assessment consultant with a special interest in grading and reporting. An internationally recognized speaker who has presented in 47 states in the United States, 9 provinces and one territory in Canada, and 24 other countries, he has also consulted for schools, districts, and state and provincial departments of education. He had 23 years of classroom experience from grade 7 to grade 12, and 10 years of experience as a curriculum coordinator for a large school district. Ken was born in Melbourne, Australia, but has lived most of his life in the east end of Toronto, Canada.

His major extra-curricular interest is field hockey, as a player, umpire and coach. As a coach, three of his players went on to represent Canada in the Olympics. He also umpired at the 1984 Olympic Games and the 1990 World Cup.

Review:

"Once again, Ken O'Connor has addressed one of the most emotional issues in education: grading. This book not only makes a compelling case for reformed grading practices, but also provides practical advice for the classroom teacher, school and system administrator, and policy maker at every level."--Douglas Reeves, Chairman (05/26/2009)

"Unlike some books that are long on theory and short on implementation, this book combines convincing arguments and research with practical classroom procedures. Writing with the teacher in mind, O'Connor provides the detailed procedures and examples needed to implement standards-based grading in the classroom. After using these concepts and procedures for the past four years, I would recommend O'Connor's approach to all teachers who believe that grades should clearly communicate actual student learning. For educators who want to make student grades more meaningful and useful to students, parents, and teachers, this is the book to read."--Forrest Clark, Math Teacher (10/28/2008)

"O'Connor not only provides readers with valuable information regarding the theory, context, and purpose of grading, he also includes practical strategies and solutions for classroom implementation."--Patricia Schenck, Academic Program Coordinator, Educator Preparation (10/28/2008)

"O'Connor's patient, methodical approach, along with realistic examples, gives the reader a road map to define and implement grades that are truly based on academic achievement."--Duane Coleman, Director of Secondary Curriculum and Instruction (10/28/2008)

"O'Connor has raised the stakes and opened more thinking about grading with this third edition, updated for the critically thinking, research-based teacher of our increasingly diverse classrooms. O'Connor presents clear advice on grading homework, moving beyond points and percentages, grading academic dishonesty, grading cooperative learning groups, gradebook formats, dealing with zeroes and late work, students re-doing work, students' self-assessments, what grades can and cannot reveal, and much more."--Rick Wormeli, Teacher Trainer (10/28/2008)
