What are we grading? (A hopeful conversation)

This post has been a long time coming. I've spent time in the teachers' lounge and on twitter having conversations about grading. Here's my struggle with grading... 

What does a grade mean?

Is a grade the way of ranking of what students know?

Should completeness of homework be a portion of a grade?

Should a student who learns "faster" than another student get a better grade than one who may learn "slower"?

I look forward to your responses and the conversation we can create!
