Grading and Responding to Students Concerns about Grades
Wednesday, October 7th, 2015
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Seigle Hall 306, Danforth campus
What are some of the challenges that TAs face when they grade student work? How will you respond when a student comes to you with questions about a grade? This interactive TA-Training workshop will help you learn to grade effectively and efficiently as part of a team of faculty and TAs.
Through interactive discussion in the workshop, graduate students will develop strategies to
Communicate with faculty about grading criteria, policies, and procedures.
Ensure fairness and consistency during grading.
Help students understand grades and feedback as information that can help them identify where they are in their learning and what they can do to improve.
Respond effectively to common student concerns about grading.
Presenter: Bryn Lutes, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center
