Writing to Affirm Student Values and Close Achievement Gaps

Wednesday, November 1, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Students often come to our courses with preconceived notions about how they will do based on their own identities. Studies have shown that these notions affect student performance. However, research has also demonstrated that we can help students succeed by emphasizing a growth rather than a fixed mindset—that is, all students can learn course concepts and skills regardless of background.

Specifications Grading in Canvas (Brown Bag)

Monday, November 6, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

On a recent visit to IUB, Linda Nilson introduced many of us to the method of Specifications Grading, or specs grading. “Research reveals that this kind of assignment grading increases student motivation and produces higher-quality work than traditional grading systems do.” During this brownbag discussion, we will give a brief overview of the key concepts of specs grading and provide examples of how to set up the Gradebook in Canvas to facilitate it. Bring any questions you may have about your own experiences. A hands-on workshop is scheduled for December, where you will apply this method to your own course.
