Are you interested in thinking about how to spend more time on student feedback and less on assigning and justifying grades? Please consider joining the Thinq.Studio book club for Hacking Assessment: 10 Ways to Go Gradeless in a Traditional Grades School. While the book is aimed at K12 teachers, we’ll be talking about how to apply and develop its insights for higher ed.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to express your initial interest in this book club and/or future events related to alternative assessment by Sep 10, 2017. After that, I’ll send out an email about scheduling and select a time that works for as many people as possible. We’ll do these things in-person in Denver on the CU campus, but I’m planning to set up an online space for people in other places to share resources too.
I am also looking for suggestions of other books or concepts you think would be useful for thinking about alternative assessments, from specifications and contract grading to mastery and competency-based education. Please let me know via email or comment below.
