Grading Strategies: Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

Alison Thomas (CAS-LIT)

MGC 200

This workshop will initiate discussion about grading as a pedagogical act. We’ll discuss the usefulness of classroom tools such as rubrics for maintaining fairness and consistency, and we’ll look at examples of rubrics for a variety of academic genres (group work, presentations, essays, and more). Based on some of my work in CAS, I hope I can also inspire everyone to think about how to create meaningful evaluations that incorporate lessons about integrity and ethical decision-making.
