In our Digital Pedagogy talk on Wednesday, October 10, Noah Mass, Sarah Bleakney, James Gregory, and Emily Kane will discuss strategies for assessing student work. In our discussion, we will focus on two forms of assessment: self-assessment by the student in peer response and revision, and assessment of student work by the instructor. Noah Mass will describe his process of showcasing student drafts in conjunction with peer response exercises; Sarah Bleakney will discuss how she incorporates self-reflection into student presentations; James Gregory will discuss strategies for the use of audio feedback on student work; and Emily Kane will lead discussion about tools we can use to assess more efficiently without sacrificing quality and effectiveness.
