Eighth-grade English teacher Ariel Sacks in this blog post shares a tool she created for calculating students' grades for classroom participation. The measurement considers both how well the student contributes to the overall learning of the class, plus how well they manage their personal conduct so they do not disturb the learning of others. Sacks describes an exercise in which she has students use the tool to understand and evaluate their own performance and that of their classmates.
