Feedback and Grading

  • Exit Tickets and Midterm Surveys

    Exit tickets and midterm surveys are great ways to collect feedback from students that can be used to improve your class sessions and identify what is already working well.​
  • 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.
