This week, we’re back with another case study from our upcoming book, “Grading for Growth.” This case study is one answer to a common question: How can I use alternative grading in a big class? As always, please leave us feedback about this case study in the comments. Do you find it helpful? Is there something more you’d like to know? What could make it better?
I have two thoughts for details to address in possible future posts: 1. a case where someone uses Team-Based Learning, 2. a case where someone uses flexible assignments (for example, I let students and teams self-select topics of interest and then ask them to tell me how they align with my learning outcomes and micro-outcomes... I am trying to find room to make this approach fit into an alternative grading scheme.
I am curious if you have any social science examples in your book.
Fascinating case study - very impressed. When will the book be published? Publisher?
