Ever read a quote in a work of nonfiction, maybe an education book, and think, “I know more than that person,” or “that looks like something I would have said.” Here’s your chance to be that person. Are you an educator with an opinion about traditional number and letter grades?

My new book about changing how we assess learning will be published in early 2015, and I’m looking for quotable opinion from experts — educators who have used both traditional grading and some sort of narrative feedback. If you’re familiar with SE2R and have used it or a similar model for assessment, and you’d like your opinion shared with a worldwide audience, please comment below.

At this point, I’m looking for general opinion on conversation about learning and meaningful written feedback in place of traditional measurements.

  • What does feedback look like to you?
  • What makes feedback powerful?
  • What roadblocks make providing narrative feedback difficult?
  • What role does technology/social media play in providing feedback for learning?
  • Do you think a narrative feedback model is unrealistic? Why?
  • What do you say to proponents of traditional grades?
  • How does a feedback model impact report cards?

It’s time to become a recognized expert. Just answer any or all of the above questions in the LiveFyre comment section below. Please understand that commenting doesn’t mean you will automatically be quoted in the book. Anyone quoted will need to sign a permission for the publisher.

Okay, let’s get this conversation started.
