In this interactive session, Joe Feldman, career educator and author of the book Grading for Equity, and Dr. Shantha Smith provide a brief overview of the history of traditional grading and how the continued use of those practices can negatively impact teaching and learning, raise stress, and perpetuate disparities. They introduce a framework for equitable grading and provide an example, then California community college faculty share practices they have adopted based on Feldman's work, and their impact on students.

We also discuss three ways our college has supported faculty in this process.
