One of the biggest challenges we face is how to turn the grading process for our students into a constructive learning experience. This workshop will focus on how to generate effective feedback that is frequent, timely, based on clear criteria, encouraging, and targeted. During the workshop, we will explore some of the research about what makes feedback effective. Also, Dr. Mir Atiqullah will share an effective methodology for how he helps his students take the next step from their current level to the next achievable level of performance.

For many professors, assessing student learning is an isolating and anxiety-producing event, followed by varied reactions from students who often seem nonplussed by their grades. But what if students were included in semester-long assessment activities that were practiced, discussed, and reconsidered throughout the semester?
