Academic Roundtable 2014:

The Role of Grading

To many faculty, grading is a necessary burden that accompanies the more invigorating dimensions of teaching.  Grading's secure place in the academy, however, often forestalls sustained discussion of its purpose and operation.  This Academic Roundtable, which will be facilitated by Jane Chaplin of the Classics Department, Roger Sandwick of the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department, and Don Wyatt of the History Department, will explore the following questions:  How does grading best promote student learning?  What are strategies for discussing grades with disgruntled or disappointed students? Can grades be used for both process and product in the same course?  Should we be concerned about grade inflation?  And is there an art to grading?
