When most students come into our classrooms, they bring with them an unhealthy attitude toward grading, which has often been instilled in them by parents and past teachers. It is an attitude based on the flawed assumption that grades are supposed to function as "carrots and sticks"
In this episode, Dr. Colin Roche shares how he tries to explain grading to his students in order to ensure that they understand the process a little better and acquire a more accurate conception of grading so that it enhances, rather than impedes their learning.
This episode is part of series where we take a long, hard, honest and uncensored look at the way we grade students in our schools today, including how we report their learning progress. A few of the many resources that influence our approach are the books, "On Your Mark" by Thomas Guskey, "A Repair Kit For Grading" by Ken O'Connor, and "Learner-Centered Assessment on College Campuses" by Mary Huba and Jann Freed.
