I ask students to engage in self-evaluation. They give themselves grades (with justification) on the assessment sheet I provide for big assignments.
Typically, I have three broad questions (with assignment specific questions for each):
1. Is your project thorough? (Complete?)
2. Is your project thoughtful? (Analytical?)
3. Is your project articulate? (Meeting the writing standards?)
I enter my grades with comments on the same assessment sheet. I am having to offer fewer comments when the student’s grade and mine coincide.
On November 12, 2019 Muhlenberg colleagues gathered to share their teaching hacks. Teaching hacks are relatively simple strategies that we might use to improve student learning or reduce our workload. These strategies might free up additional class time, increase the efficiency of our practices, or better support our ability to work on scholarship or service.
