Spring Quarter 2024 Events

Book Circle: Ungrading

Our book circle in the Winter Quarter considered how alternative approaches to conventional grading can promote student motivation and learning. In this Spring Quarter book circle, we extend the discussion—and warmly invite new members to join us!— by considering the practice of ungrading. To guide our discussion, we will be reading a collection of writing with the provocative title, Ungrading: Why Rating Students Undermines Learning (and What to Do Instead).
