When we think of grading, we often think of assigning a value to a piece of student work (or a stack of student work, come finals week).  Grading is actually a process that, with some instructor planning, yields information that both students and instructors can use to improve student learning. This workshop will introduce participants to types of student assessment and the steps in the grading process. Participants will have the opportunity to revise learning objectives, evaluate assessments for alignment, improve assignment descriptions, and practice offering effective feedback.  We will also briefly discuss models of grading, including grading on a curve. As a result of completing this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Define assessment.Articulate the difference between formative and summative assessment 
  • Describe characteristics of an effective assessment
  • Explain steps in the grading process
  • Create an assignment prompt which aligns with a learning objective and communicates grading criteria to students
  • Provide effective feedback to students
  • Identify situations in which grading on a curve might be appropriate
