This paper examines the transformative impact of implementing Standards-Based Grading (SBG) on student learning and motivation. Through surveys and data analysis, this research evaluates stakeholder perceptions during SBG adoption, comparing its perceived benefits to traditional grading methods. The findings offer valuable insights for institutions seeking to enhance academic excellence and equity and foster a culture of continuous improvement. The plan emphasizes personalized feedback, competency-based progression, and a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Furthermore, the study delves into the challenges of faculty adaptation, resistance to change, and the integration of SBG with existing practices, ensuring a successful induction process for teachers and greater teacher efficacy of standards-based grading implementation.
