Talking about teaching: The Future of Grading and Assessment

Friday, March 25, 2022

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Chronicle of Education is offering a free webinar on 3/25 at 1PM CST (Register for the Zoom link)

The pandemic brought about many challenges to effective teaching. Chief among them may be assessment.
Many faculty members have had to rethink how they evaluate student learning, from assignments to tests to grading.
Should they stick to midterms and finals or switch to more frequent, lower-stakes quizzes? If they are online, should they consider using proctoring software to reduce cheating? Are there better ways to evaluate student learning beyond tests and papers? All of those smaller questions are often wrapped up in a larger one: What do they want students to learn and remember? And how can they tell?
Join Beth McMurtrie and Beckie Supiano, Chronicle senior writers and authors of our free Teaching newsletter, on March 25 at 2:00-3:00 PM ET for the third installment of Talking About Teaching. This monthly series of roundtable discussions will tackle the topics that concern you most — and answer your questions. Plus, the conversation will continue in the Teaching newsletter.
Register for the third session on the future of grading and assessment to:
  • Consider common challenges to testing and assessment in the pandemic era.
  • Discuss alternate ways to evaluate student learning beyond quizzes and exams.
  • Think through the pros and cons of online test proctoring.
  • Connect with other instructors who face similar challenges.
