Approaches to Ungrading

Guest Presenters: Derritt Mason & Morgan Vanek

Description: Over the last few years, ‘ungrading’ — an approach to assessment that de-centres grades, privileging instead student labour and formative feedback — has become both an increasingly common practice in postsecondary classrooms and the subject of increasing controversy in popular and scholarly publications concerned with teaching and learning.

What does it mean to have ‘completed’ an assignment? How can this approach work in classes that require demonstrated mastery of core disciplinary skills? What does an ungraded final exam look like? Along with a brief introduction to ungrading, this workshop is intended to offer participants an opportunity to work through some of these questions, and to collaborate with colleagues in other fields to identify solutions that could work in each of their courses.
