Feedback for Growth Mindset

Grading consumes much of our time and effort as faculty members, and it’s the place where our feedback can make a great difference in students’ ability to learn and succeed. The Grading and Growth Mindset workshop features Dr. Lex Lancaster, assistant professor of Art History, sharing their research and experiences with contract grading/specifications grading

Contract grading offers an alternative to traditional grading by focusing attention on effort, outcomes, standards, feedback, revision, and growth. By offering a transparent map to success, courses with contract grading often see the quality of students’ work improve while students build their metacognitive skills and become better learners across all their courses.

This blended workshop will be held virtually in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra and live at the George, Room 120, today, Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 2:30 pm
