**ONLINE** Developing Fair, Consistent, and Transparent Grading Practices

Tuesday, February 13, 2024 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Each professor’s grading policies reflect their own beliefs about student learning, motivation, and success. Grading policies often vary across campus, within individual departments, and even between instructors in the same department teaching the same course. Faculty may believe that their grading practices are fair, but oftentimes policies inadvertently perpetuate achievement disparities. While grades can be more indicative of how an individual instructor grades than a valid assessment of student learning, there are more serious considerations to grading regarding equity. Traditional grading approaches often advantage privileged students while disadvantaging historically underserved students, which can interfere with retention and success efforts. In this workshop, explore research-based grading practices that promote equity and examine why certain policies may contribute to achievement gaps. Advance registration is required. Register Now!
