More faculty are considering alternative grading approaches, like ungrading and labor-based contract grading, to move students’ focus away from grades and towards learning. In this faculty panel, we’ll hear from three instructors who have successfully used alternative grading approaches in their courses: Elkie Burnside (Writing Program); Jason Hooper (Music Theory); and Caralyn Zehnder (Biology). We encourage audience members to come with questions on how to implement these approaches in their courses and what they should consider before trying these new approaches to grading student work.
