3c) Motivate Students: Providing Time for Mastery

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Alternative grading strategies come in a variety of flavors. In this session, I will explain how I have interpreted these various ideas into a system designed to stop students from chasing points and instead motivate them to develop mastery of the course learning objectives. I will describe how I have done this in a way that allows for a great deal of student choice in terms of content selection as well as the medium of assessment and how you may be able to adopt a similar system!
1. Describe the use of alternative grading systems.
2. Explain how mastery-based grading can motivate students.
3. Describe how providing choice and time for revisions can positively impact student motivation.
