Due to practical demands, many professors are required to teach large-section classes with hundreds of students.

If you have ever taught a large-section class, you understand how difficult it is to individually grade papers, assignments, or projects, or meet with hundreds of students one-on-one to provide individual feedback. There must be a better way-right?

Using peer assessment, self-assessment, creative coursework design, grading rubrics, and technology, educators can offer meaningful feedback and effective grading approaches in large-section classes. Discover ideas that you will be able to incorporate almost immediately from an educator who has successfully used this approach.
