Wed 15 Mar 2023 19:00 - 22:00 at 701A - Workshop 101

Are you tired of spending time dealing with students who complain over fractions of points? Do you get frustrated spending most of your marking time on work that is not remotely close to what you expected? Are you looking for a more equitable approach to grading? What if there was a better way to do grading that actually measured student learning outcomes, caused fewer arguments, and took less time? Well, there is, and it’s called Specifications Grading.

This workshop will explore what Specifications Grading is and enable you to apply these techniques to the courses you teach. Although the presenters come from higher education, the concepts presented in this workshop are applicable to you, whether you are a middle school, high school, or university teacher.

Having access to one or more of your current syllabi and/or assignment instructions during this interactive workshop may be helpful but is not required. You will leave the workshop with a plan to modify at least one of your courses and will receive access to an extensive set of examples and resources created by the presenters.
