Ungrading Overview

Ungrading is a process of moving away from an instructor's role of giving feedback. It involves giving students more ownership of their learning process by facilitating student reflection and self-assessment in the place of some or all instructor grading. In this session, we will present brief, introductory overviews of several forms of ungrading and describe how they can be scaled:

  • Self-assessment and process letters
  • Grade-free zones
  • Minimal grading
  • Contract grading
  • Student-created assessments and tools

At the end of the session, you will have the opportunity to begin planning how to implement one or several of these strategies in your course to transform the way you conduct assessments.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define ungrading and describe its purpose.
  • Describe several methods for ungrading.
  • Plan how to incorporate ungrading methods into your courses.
  • Discuss how to prepare students to engage in ungrading.

This workshop counts towards the Achievement in Pedagogy badge.
