New Practices, New Perspectives

To grade, or not to grade? The traditional approach to evaluating student performance holds that measuring students’ work by a percentage or letter serves as a barometer of how much they’ve learned. But nontraditional approaches have been garnering attention as questions swirl around issues like grade inflation, high failure rates in STEM courses, assessments strategies for online students, and more.

 

This collection of Chronicle opinion essays and news stories provides an overview of various grading methods and views on them — and explores the challenges of measuring student success and learning.
