Grading has a profound impact both on students' futures and on how and what they learn. Yet, traditional grading is marred by undue influences and questionable practices. In this course, participants learn from workshop, classroom, and interview footage to assess their grading and feedback for accuracy, fairness, specificity, and timeliness. They explore ways to improve their feedback to students during the learning process. Finally, they question some customary practices—including not distinguishing academic from behavioral issues, giving mathematically imprecise zeros, and grading the process rather than the product—and consider elegant and efficient alternatives to affect student engagement and achievement
