Finals: Essentials of Remote Grading and Feedback

Like objects in a car mirror, the end of the semester is closer than it appears. Have you been effectively assessing student progress in the remote learning environment? Are you ready to assign final grades? The assessment process and the grading process are similar, but not the same. Assessment does not always involve grading, but grading should always involve assessment and feedback. This workshop is designed to help faculty understand the essential elements of grading and feedback within the framework of effective and meaningful assessment of student learning. Faculty will leave this session understanding the best practices for teaching what you are grading, and grading what you are teaching.

After this workshop, faculty will be able to:

  • Define grading, assessment, and feedback
  • Describe characteristics of an effective assessment
  • Explain essential steps in the grading process
  • Provide effective feedback to students
  • Identify appropriate situations for different types of grading
  • Grade efficiently and effectively in online settings
  • Apply grading, assessment, and feedback best practices in the remote learning environment

These workshops are just-in-time, focused discussions on a specific topic related to teaching remotely. All workshops will be conducted via Zoom, are approximately one hour in length, and all times are EST.
