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.
Presenters: Joe Feldman and Dr. Shantha Smith (Crescendo Education Group), Ryan Sullivan (Mt. San Jacinto College), and Jeff Anderson (Foothill College)
