Interested in developing or redesigning an assignment or course using contract grading, ungrading, specs grading, or a combination of alternative approaches to grading?
Join a group of instructors to implement a customized change in your grading practices. At the first session, participants will create a plan for how to adopt an alternative grading practice and then return to the second session with a draft for peer feedback.

This Learning Lab will meet two (2) times between Monday, April 8 - Friday, May 10, 2024.

Learning Lab Facilitator: Melissa Ko (RAP Consultant)

What are Learning Labs?
Learning Labs are online communities of practice for instructors to engage in small group discussions around concepts and topics from the 2023-24 Reimagining Assessment Practicum (RAP) as opportunities for connection, as well as to reflect on and receive feedback on practical application. Each Learning Lab will be facilitated as two (2) meetings during an academic quarter. Learning Lab Facilitators will contact you about scheduling and other updates.

Eligibility requirements: To participate in a Learning Lab, you must have registered for a prior or current 2023-24 RAP iteration.
