So I have the green light to turn my reading quizzes into a mini-sbg experiment next semester. Each standard will end up being counted for 3pts of what was a 5pt reading quiz, the other 2 pts will come from students completing ungraded online questions about the reading (JiTT style). Every standard will be graded yes or no, and it can’t be taken away from the student once they get a yes. I’ll be allowing students to request reassessments through the exam that covers that material. If they show mastery of any standard from their work on that test, or any later test, they can ask me to change it, but I’m not allowing infinite reassessments.

The standards are an attempt to balance basic things students need to know, things I think are important, and things they need to be able to do to perform well on the exam (which I have no control over). “Synthesis” is not a standard, but is basically what they can expect to be able to do on the exam. It also reflects the kind of problems we practice in class as groups. It is not part of the standards, but it points to what they should practice after they have passed all the standards.
