Reducing Coding Anxiety through Self-Assessment (and Drag Queens): Ungrading CAS AN/BI 588
Christopher Schmitt, Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Biology, knows that learning coding and statistics is daunting. We learn at different paces and panic when graded on unfamiliar techniques. He has ‘ungraded’ his stats/coding class by providing flipped modules, flexible peer-assessed deadlines, and shares how a final self-assessment that (almost) always yields the grade he would have given and how freed from grading panic, students actually learn and build long-term proficiency.
