9/20 Workshop: Grading with Rigor
Bonnie Dow, Communication Studies;
Ken Schriver, Physics & Astronomy; and
Michelle Sulikowski, Chemistry
In this session, we will consider how to design and grade assessments that foster student learning and engagement while demanding academic excellence. How to balance generous support of students’ learning needs with requirements that impel their further achievement? It is a challenge to create and grade assignments with academic rigor, especially given concerns about a potential relationship between grades earned and students’ satisfaction with a course. Yet, faculty who teach most effectively combine high expectations, well-crafted assignments and rigorous grading to motivate their students’ best efforts and enthusiastic engagement. Join us to learn how they strive for this balance of support and challenge for students. Panelists will share their ideas and strategies individually, and then welcome your questions for group discussion.
