Implementing Alternative Grading in Math Courses
From Jon Gunnell
What can a grade convey? In our classes, we track student proficiency in each course learning objective and allow students multiple opportunities to demonstrate their understanding of each objective. This gives students the chance to continue working on skills past traditional deadlines such as exam dates, and it gives instructors more detailed information about student progress. We will discuss how we have implemented these alternative grading techniques in our math courses, ways to test-drive these techniques in a traditionally graded course, and how to build learning objectives and track student progress using Canvas.
