Facilitator: Angela Zito
This workshop is offered in partnership with Writing Across the Curriculum.
How will you assess students’ writing equitably when each student is turning in something different? Writing assignments integrate student background, culture and more. Equitable assessment plays an important role in determining how you will design your writing assignments, rather than a topic to tackle after you have a stack of student papers sitting on your desk or waiting in your inbox.
An inclusive approach to assessment considers how the evaluation of student writing contributes to their evolving understanding of course content and the research and writing practices of your field. This workshop will give an overview of principles and strategies to achieve more equitable assessment of student writing, including discussion of sample rubrics and “ungrading” approaches like specifications, contract grading, and more.
Registration is required.
