Gail is absolutely correct...pick and choose when and how to "grade".

For homework;  + if they seem to get it;  - if they don't

If possible in the next class, have the +'s help the -'s. Then let the
students redo the assignment.

For determining a grade, keep the tests short and frequent. Make
certain that each problem tests a specific skill. Keep complex
problems to a minimum.

When students are in groups, give  the group a complex problem...watch
and listen to the discussions.

Check out "Project Zero" Harvard graduate school of education. Lots of
good suggestions.
