In this experimental workshop, participants will explore a variety of contract grading models that promote fair, transparent and inclusive assessment. Through hands-on guided activities, participants will consider how the principles of contract grading can help them more carefully articulate specific course outcomes and motivate the student behaviors and disciplinary habits of mind they value. The workshop is designed to help faculty reduce the emotional labor associated with grading so they can better support students in achieving their personal and academic goals.
Facilitators: Nate Mickelson, Leah Souffrant, Gita DasBender (Expository Writing Program, CAS)
