Differentiated Instruction and Grading
I find that differentiated instruction is more beneficial in my classroom and most manageable with the inclusion students. When entering grades in the gradebook that count toward semester average on report cards, should the differentiated instruction be graded and entered? Or should that only be used for instruction and assessments entered in the gradebook be consistent between all students?

I feel that it should, in most cases. Differentiating assessments still allows us to see what all students have learned. The assessment was simply written on their ability level. However, not every activity I do in my classroom is graded. It is according to what we are working on.

Grading assignments is helpful to see growth and show whats going on. Differentiated Instruction grades are definitely necessary to show growth. I would grade them. Differentiated Instruction may benefit all students. Scaffolding assignments and using stations is a great way for students to do the same thing at different levels and times, but still receive a quality grade for them.

Differentiated instruction should be graded and put in the grade book. The students are completing work on their level of understanding and are learning the same material just on a different level.

If it has still assessed the standard then it should be allowed to be officially in the grade book, but doesn't necessarily have to. It should be whichever helps the child the most.

I fell that it should be graded and entered. Differentiated instruction is a viable tool that allows teachers to help their students learn content, if blended with today’s standards each student will not only flourish in the classroom but will excel.

Yes, as long as the differentiated instrution is rigorous for all ability levels, it needs to be entered into the gradebook. It is simply a way to measure student progress and monitor their progress.

I think that it should be included, especially if you have a student who thrives in it. Not every student is the same, therefore they should not be graded the same way. Same material, different methods of delivering it.
