Standards Based Grading System

Greetings All,
What are your thoughts on current grading trends where completion versus the learning. I would love the opportunity to look at examples of systems using a different type of grading system.

Personally, I allow students to retake tests. If the student is willing to learn the material, then I should be flexible enough to allow him/her to get the grade he/she truly deserves.

What are your thoughts community? I've found a book that refers to this topic. Anyone read it? Have other resources on the topic? Here's an article: Seven Reasons for Standards-Based Grading. 

Happy Days! -Ashley
