How Can Grading Policy Options Influence Student Learning?

Learn the positive results—empowering students, motivating them, increasing their engagement, achieving better learning outcomes—that can be realized through strategic decisions you make about your grading policies.

From extra credit to “error forgiveness,” your grading policies can influence student performance.

There’s no doubt that students are often motivated by the goal of a good grade. So it should be no surprise that the rules you set for getting those good grades can be powerful tools for encouraging students to learn the things you want them to learn, in the ways you want them to learn.

In the 20-Minute Mentor How Can Grading Policy Options Influence Student Learning?, Maryellen Weimer, Ph.D., editor of  The Teaching Professor newsletter and blog, will share policy decisions you can make to promote a more meaningful learning experience for your students.

In this insight-filled presentation, you’ll consider the:

  • Pluses and minuses of extra-credit assignments
  • Benefits of dropping low grades and other types of “error forgiveness”
  • Motivational value of increasing student choice
  • Pitfalls and opportunities in grading attendance and participation

Weimer explains what both pedagogical research and her own experience as a longtime educator reveal about the efficacy of different policy decisions, and their potential impact on both students and professors.

At the conclusion of the presentation, you’ll be able to:

  • Articulate the costs and benefits of various grading policy decisions
  • Understand the workload implications of more flexible policies
  • Formulate policies that promote your desired learning outcomes
