Crescendo Education Group is a team current and former teachers and school / district administrators who believe that the most powerful way to improve student achievement, particularly for historically-underserved populations, is to create powerful learning experiences for those who educate them.
We focus on building capacity of teachers and leaders to understand, develop, and implement more equitable grading and assessment practices that fulfill the Grading for Equity pillars: they are accurate, bias-resistant, and motivational. We partner in several ways tailored to the needs and context of our partners:
- Single Equitable Grading Workshop, Institute or Keynote
- Systemwide Change Partnership (additional information about our pedagogical approach to teacher learning about equitable grading)
- Grading for Equity Online Course
