Grading as Effective Teaching in MathematicsLive Webcast

​Can grades and grading systems do more than measure student learning? Can they be designed to improve student learning? In this webcast, Sharona Krinksy, Lecturer in the Mathematics Deparment at California State University, Los Angeles will share how she uses mastery-based grading and backward design in pre-calculus and calculus courses to achieve higher levels of engagement and more focused learning. She will also outline how she has incorporated thoughtful assessment into the redesign of the general education statistics course that CSU Los Angeles will offer with co-requisite support in the fall.   Participants will learn the benefits of allowing students to reassess to demonstrate mastery of standards and discuss the challenges of implementing mastery-based grading at scale.

Standards-Based Grading: Enhancing Learning in Math through AssessmentLive Webcast

Assessment practices can have positive as well as unintended negative effects on student learning. In contrast to traditional grading systems, standards-based grading encourages students to see learning as an iterative process and to adopt a growth mindset. In this webcast, Dr. Adam Glesser, Associate Professor of Mathematics at California State University, Fullerton will share his motivation for adopting a standards-based approach to assessment, provide detailed explanation of the system he has refined over eight years, and review the advantages and disadvantages of basing students’ grades on the learning they have demonstrated by the end of the term.
