Five Ways to Build e-Learner Confidence with Low-Stakes Grading

Turning Low Stakes into High Performance

Whoever said "Less is more" didn't know about frequent, low-stakes grading.

The strategy that incorporates many small, low-pressure assignments keeps students thinking about course materials and alerts instructors to comprehension problems before the high-stakes term papers and exams roll around.

Frequent low-stakes grading, or FLS grading, is a beneficial approach in all of higher education, but it is particularly powerful in the online environment where instructors can't see students who are texting away, drifting off, or otherwise disengaged. FLS grading keeps students focused and on track, and it provides regular performance feedback so that students-as well as instructors-always know how they are doing in a course.

Benefits

Frequent low-stakes quizzes and informal writing assignments help students learn so that they are better prepared for high-stakes term papers and exams. Learn how FLS grading can lead to improved learning, enhanced online educational environments, and better educational outcomes overall in Five Ways to Build e-Learner Confidence with Low-Stakes Grading.

And donít worry. More frequent evaluations doesnít have to mean more work for instructors.
