Feedback and Grading

  • Direct vs. Indirect Assessment

    It is important to understand the distinction between direct and indirect evidence of student learning. 
  • Assessment and Bias

    As instructors, it's important to reduce unintentional bias in our assessments and to understand how a perceived threat of bias can affect student performance.​​

  • Low-Stakes Assignments

    The purpose of low-stakes assignments is to provide students with an indication of their performance and an opportunity to improve prior to receiving a final grade.
  • High-Stakes Assignments

    High-stakes assessment of student learning often involves the evaluation of a student's final "product," whether it is a term paper, final exam, or other type of project.
  • Responding to Plagiarism

    Approaching plagiarism as an opportunity for teaching and learning, rather than exclusively focusing on detection and punishment, has significant benefits for both students and educators.
  • Assessing Reflection

    Assessing reflection can be challenging, but there some assessment frameworks that can help.
  • Submitting Grades

    Official course grades must be submitted in Campus Connect.
