CIPs Teaching Tips – Spring 2013 #11 “Grading Quick Tip”

It’s that time of the semester again – grading is or is about to pile up around our ears. Keep in mind that grading is your chance to give personalized feedback to your students. Good feedback helps them to learn. Make sure your feedback delivers this opportunity. If it simply gives them the ultimate, perfect answer instead of facilitating their growth; or if it ends up as a rant about what they did wrong, take a deep breath and change it. Turns out…we can learn a lot from grading too.

May your piles diminish in wonderful ways,
