You Don’t Have to Grade Like That! Exploring Grading Alternatives

August 26, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


This session provides an overview of ways UVM colleagues have challenged traditional grading systems in order to change classroom and power dynamics, improve student outcomes, and make grading more efficient. Join us to learn about their experiences with alternative grading methods (such as contract grading or specifications grading) and ungrading methods (strategies for eliminating grades as much as possible) and discover how these approaches can refocus time and attention for faculty and students.

Facilitated by Susanmarie Harrington, Center for Teaching and Learning & Writing in the Disciplines, and Holly Buckland Parker, Center for Teaching and Learning
