STANDARDS-BASED GRADING (SBG) -- not part of workshop, but there's some interesting reading.

Here’s some info about “Standards-Based Grading” (SBG).  This could be an entire workshop in itself. 

Even if you don’t adopt SBG, you can incorporate some of its ideas and practices into your own system, if they fit with what you want to accomplish.

I have to thank these teacher/bloggers, because they have made me really think and question grading practices.
