Grading can be accelerated to make time for more effective instruction. This article presents specific time management strategies selected to decrease administrative time required of faculty and teaching assistants, including a multiple answer multiple choice interface for exams, a three-tier grading system for open ended problem solving, and a frequent quiz strategy for essential content. These approaches provide more time to help struggling students, pursue research and grant writing, and seek work-life balance.
