Grading Classroom Participation.
Bean, John C.; Peterson, Dean
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n74 p33-40 Sum 1998
Grading class participation can send positive signals to college students about the kind of learning and thinking an instructor values. Various structures for participation (whole-class discussion, cold-calling on students, collaborative learning, electronic mail, journals, student-faculty conferences) call for different approaches to assessment. Instructional strategies can be used to improve participation and increase fairness of assessment. (MSE)
