Earlier this week I saw this tweet from the national WIDA Conference and was very intrigued – I hadn’t heard the term “Differentiated Grading” before:
Love the ideas about differentiated grading for ELs! Let’s set linguistically differentiated expectations #wida2017 @EngLangAcqAACPS pic.twitter.com/ouTt9Ik3mZ

I’ve contacted the folks mentioned in the tweet and hope to get more information from them.
In the meantime, I thought I’d ask readers how your faculty/school/district handle grading for ELLs in mainstream content classes?
The only other thing I found online about it was this PowerPoint from a school district.
Here’s an interesting Facebook discussion on the topic.
