The Value of Zero

One of my students is an elementary principal in southern Michigan and he writes a weekly blog that is shared with his staff and others. This week he writes about the use of "0" in grading. When we use zeroes we can seriously impact a student's grade. I enjoyed his thoughts about this topic and hope you find it interesting and thought-provoking.

At the end he poses a fascinating question---Grades are a communication tool to students and parents, do your grades reflect knowledge or effort?
