Pedagogy Roundtable: Grading and Evaluating Student Work

April 13, 2018 - 12:30pm to 2:30pm

Join us for a discussion of the practical and ethical quandaries of grading and evaluating student work. What is contract grading? Are rubrics actually useful? How much should students collaborate in the process of evaluating their own work? Is it possible to spendĀ less time providingĀ better feedback? What kinds of tools and methods exist for providing effective and efficient feedback on digital projects?

Offering a rare glimpse into colleagues' grading and evaluation practices, Ben Miller, Janet Zellmann, Cumi Ikeda, Kelsey Cameron, and Moriah Purdy will discuss lessons learned, best practices, and preferred methods for responding to student projects in a range of genres and for devising grading schemes in their courses.

Bring your questions, your methods, and your own anecdotes. And bring your appetite! The Composition Program will provide a light lunch.
