Full course description
Assessing and grading are two different actions. Learn a variety of formative and summative assessment techniques. A major focus is how to assess student work using rubrics.
When done well, assessing student work can:
• Provide feedback to instructors on their students’ learning
• Provide feedback to students on their own learning
• Provide a means of communicating to students, parents, post-secondary schools, and future employers about a student’s performance in their CTE class and potential for further success
• Be a source of motivation to students
In this course you will develop your own philosophy of grading and will wrestle with issues such as:
• Why we grade student work
• What we should grade
• How many points an assignment should be worth
• How many points should be earned in a grading period
• Allowing redo’s. Requiring redo’s.
• Make-up work. Amnesty Days.
• Extra Credit
• What grading scales can be used
• Who can grade student work
• Weighted Grades and Grading on a Curve
