This workshop is designed for those who have received a Marker/Grader position as well as any Graduate Student (new or experienced) interested in developing sound assessment and grading practices. This half-day session will give a brief overview of marking and grading principles, such as types of formative and summative grading practices, validity and reliability issues, as well as offer participants practical strategies for grading with rubrics. Most of the workshop will be dedicated to marking and grading practices as participants will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge by grading sample assignments with their peers. The focus will be on the process of grading, not on content, as you may be asked to grade a piece of work common in your discipline (e.g. short answer questions, essays, lab reports) but not necessarily from your discipline. This is a condensed version of the Marking and Grading Workshop for Graduate Students.
This workshop will count towards the Teaching Commons ‘Record of Completion’ certificate
