In the past five to ten years, educators have begun to increasingly question the validity of traditional grading practices. The questioning has become especially evident in the field of special education, where educators have often struggled to find objective, consistent, and valid means of assessing students who often do not have the same academic goals as other students. Through this study, special educators will be able to consider their own grading practices, and will have access to classroom-based research that thinks outside of the box in the attempt to develop a more accurate and more reliable method of grading students with moderate to severe cognitive disabilities.
