Whether the assignment is a semester-long project or a one-paragraph essay, student work should be assessed appropriately. That means aligning your assignments with your learning goals, using grading schemes that motivate students, and making good use of your time when grading. This workshop will include a 30-minute introduction to assessing student learning, followed by time for participants to work in small groups on grading schemes and rubrics for upcoming courses. Participants will be encouraged to provide feedback on each other’s ideas, and CFT assistant director Derek Bruff will be available for additional consultation.
