As Robert posted next week, we’re quickly reaching the end of our semester. So we are taking a break this week. New posts will come back next week, when Robert takes a look at how news outlets can address ungrading better than they have.
We’d also like to hear from you: What questions do you have about navigating the end of the semester with alternative grading? Or, what ways have you found to help students finish strong when using alternative grading?
If you have a question or a thought along these lines, please post a comment below this post, and feel free to respond to others’ questions and suggestions too. I’ll be watching and responding throughout the week.
Finally, if you’d like some inspiration as you near the end of your own semester (or quarter, term, …), here are a few of our past posts you might be interested in:

Is anyone aware of the existence of an ungrading microcredential? My college is exploring creation of one.
