This book challenges a number of conventional wisdoms on how to do grading. It suggests, somewhat controversially, that many of our common grading practices are inequitable. While the book is intended for a K-12 audience, most of what the book contains translates to higher-ed. This book would seem appropriate at any time, but perhaps especially now given the increase in conversations on equity.
