DateOctober 19, 2021
Time11:00 am - 12:00 pm
LocationJones Library 200 (Dennis Campbell Innovative Learning Space)
DescriptionGrading takes place in all of our classrooms and has historically been a "necessary" component of education and learning. This may not be true, and in this seminar, we will discuss what it means to assess students for understanding, what the point of a grade really is, and some alternatives to traditional grading - such as contract grading, standards-based grading, and ungrading. We invite professors from all departments to have a discussion about what a classroom without grades might look like. Participants are encouraged to bring a list of assignments from their course for analysis.
