The Game of Grading with Tom Guskey
Play • 47 min

Grading in the U.S. is typically a hodge podge amalgamation of many measurements: homework, quizzes, tests, projects, participation, and many other factors. Grading often becomes a game for many students, and some students simply refuse to play. But author Tom Guskey is hoping we can change our grading practices so that we (and students) no longer see grading as an end in itself, but instead as just a reflection of a moment in time. In this episode filled with personal stories and examples, Peter and Tom will discuss:

  • the downfalls of percentage grading
  • how grading is sometimes used as a punishment
  • Tom's recommendations for better grading practices
