Testing New Grading System
Research shows that students improve their writing when they have clear, specific feedback on their work. In this class, we use a variety of feedback tools- one on one teacher conferences in class and outside class, peer review, Adobe comments, video review, as well as simple written comments on the page. Last week we implemented a new correction system to the mix that utilizes correction codes. I like this as it places the burden of the correction on the student while offering clear direction.
Students learn in different ways and I am trying to match learning styles and feedback methods. On Wednesday, students will reflect on this past semester. One of the questions they will consider is which feedback method best suits their needs.
