Do you dread the pile of blue books that you have to read through for midterms and exams? Do you know how to grade, but would like to find a way to better explain to your students why they received the grades they did? Do you worry that your grading may be slightly inconsistent over a few days or across the semester? This workshop focuses on how to improve grading practices through the use of rubrics. Whether you are a seasoned lab leader or brand new teaching fellow, rubrics can offer an explicit, systematic way of explaining your learning objectives to students while shortening your grading time. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to rubrics used across different disciplines. Then, participants will identify how learning objectives are clearly defined for students and graders alike. Finally, this workshop will also allow participants to reflect on how they might adopt a rubric in their own current or future classroom setting. Doctoral students of all stages are welcome.
