Ken O’Connor is a former Curriculum Coordinator with the Scarborough Board of Education in Ontario, Canada. He is an expert on grading and reporting with a particular emphasis on using these techniques to improve student achievement through student involvement. O'Connor basically sums up what he states in his book How to Grade for Learning, K-12, and his work is based on and references the work of others who have tackled the grading dilemma, such as Stiggins, Marzano, and Wormeli.

A Repair Kit for Grading book. This book is about fixing grading in classroom curriculum and assessment. The ideas in Ken O’Connor’s A Repair Kit for Grading would work a lot better if students were all identical and self-motivated, and if we only want curricula to be morsels of accomplishment that once digested remain firmly in place. O’Connor’s premise is that grading in most schools is a broken practice, including irrelevant, unfair components that present inaccurate pictures of students’ academic performance.

Ken O'Connor, Pearson Assessment Training Institute - Portland, Oregon. Thus the need for this Repair Kit, in which Ken O’Connor identifies 15 ways to fix broken grades-15 things to do for grades to be effective. One of the author’s major reasons for writing this book now is the increasing emphasis on standards or learning goals (also called learning outcomes). All American states except Iowa now have academic content standards, as do all Canadian provinces.

In many schools, the answers to these questions often range from "not very" to "not at all." When that’s the case, grades are "broken" and teachers and schools need a "repair kit" to fix them.
