Deemphasizing Grades, Emphasizing Purpose

Assessment | Sep 1 - 3:00pm

We’ve all heard students ask each other: “What did you get?” We cringe when the mark seems like the only thing that matters. Since March we’ve all been forced to de-emphasize the importance of grades. How can we build on this disruption to prioritize purpose and student growth in their learning journey? This session will help broaden the concept of assessment beyond just grade acquisition.
