Adjunct Orientation

Tangela does all her homework but performs poorly on her tests;  Isabel never turns in homework, rarely participates, but listens, and aces the tests.  Tangela and Isabel end up making the same grade for the course. 

Is that a problem?  Want to talk about it?  Then join us to discuss ideas from the book Grading for Equity by Joe Feldman.

This workshop supports the following objectives:  

  • To develop grading practices that accurately reflect student competency and understanding of the course objectives and outcomes. 
  • To develop grading practices that are bias and noise resistant to support DEIAA
  • To develop grading practices that support growth mindset and learning

Facilitators: Andrew Guevara, CHC English Faculty and Jillian Robertson, CHC Math Faculty
