Inclusive Teaching Means Inclusive Grading Practices Too (Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan Series)
This session is full.
Grading and assessment practices influence much that happens in university classrooms. Given that, discussions of inclusive teaching must attend to issues of assessment -- from assignment design to feedback mechanisms to grading. This session will engage instructors in conversations and activities designed to foreground diversity and inclusion in considerations of assessment and grading practices. Drawing on a range of research traditions, we will consider how assignment, testing, and grading practices can promote student motivation and foster learning for students across diverse identities and experiences. Throughout the session, participants will be asked to review their own practices in light of this research.
