Day 88: Grading, Grading, Grading
Yup, I’m a grading machine! Lots of finals to assess, lots of lives to change. Well, not really, but I think my students sometimes think that’s the case. As I grade, I try to keep in mind final “growth” in understanding for each student. Isn’t it tough to pick questions that give a good snapshot (and that is all the questions are, just a snapshot) of a student’s understanding at that moment. So much pressure to make a final assessment that truly reflects each student’s knowledge and understanding at the end of the semester.
I’m also a “muncher” as I grade, so I tried to be more healthy…see the grapes 🙂
