Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Theme: Creating Success When Teaching & Learning Remotely

Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed online seminar series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Great conversations and handouts provided.



Session 3: What and How Am I Grading? Is it Fair? Helpful? (Part B)


  • “Is your grading consistent?”
  • “What kind of feedback is helpful?”
  • “If you have TAs, how is their grading?” 


The task of assessing and grading student learning is one of the most complex and stressful responsibilities of the faculty member and, at the same time, one of the most important.  In this two-part session, we will address both constructing a valid assessment (Part A) and grading fairly (this session). It is critical that the grading process is fair, reliable, valid, and relevant so that the resulting grade is an accurate representation of a student’s achievement. When done properly, the grade and accompanying feedback are additional teaching opportunities where students can improve their learning.


In this highly interactive session, we will learn a grading process so that our grading is fair, consistent, and manageable and ways to provide effective feedback to our students.
