Ungrading Experiences at UMBC √ §

Come to share your experiences or learn from colleagues!



Date & Time

February 22, 2023, 12:00 pm1:00 pm


Do you wish your students would focus more on learning and less on points and grades? Are you concerned that conventional forms of assessment and grading don’t fairly or adequately capture students’ development and mastery with regard to the course learning outcomes? Are you worried that without grades, you would lose the only tool you have to motivate students to engage with your course content? If your answer is ‘yes’ to one or more of these questions, then come to this session to learn more about a set of practices around assessment known as “ungrading” that shift the focus away from grading and toward student reflection and self-evaluation of learning. If you’ve already begun experimenting with elements of ungrading, then come to this session to share your experiences with your colleagues.
