If I could only recommend one resource to assist staff and administration it would be to read both books by Ken O'Connor aka "The Grading Doctor" - How to Grade for Learning and A Repair Kit for Grading. NEW (11/30/11) - Pearson just release Ken's 15 Fixes for Broken Grades video segments. They can be viewed by clicking here!
