This past Monday was our third episode of The Reboot Mini-Series. Again, educators from across the country join us live, this time to discuss proactive pandemic grading practices. The feedback after this episode was even better than what we received for the first two episode (which were in a word, awesome). Here is a sampling of what participants shared…


100% of respondents found the session to be useful and informative.


100% of respondents plan to participate in future episodes.


There were no negative entries in the open response section of the post-episode survey. Here are just a few of the positive entries.




“It gave concrete evidence to support grading practices that we have started to realize we need to implement. We realized what we were doing 1st semester was not working because students were not turning anything in, but we didn’t have the time or ability to do research to prove that. Hearing that the issues we are having are fairly ubiquitous in all schools while also being offered a solution was amazing and much needed.”


“The practical way to look at grading during a pandemic that does right by our scholars.”


“The real talk! It is concise and clear and easy to come away with the information and a new perspective.”


“It makes difficult decisions make sense.”


“It was real! There was no sugar-coating anything about our school year and there are great solutions to helping our students get through the trauma of this year.”


“A great way to handle a real issue and challenge.”


Finally the overwhelming selection for the topic of Episode 4…
