Ungrading Across the Disciplines
In this roundtable we will discuss our past experiences and future plans for using ungrading in our courses. Ungrading describes a set of alternative grading practices that aim to increase student agency in the learning process, reduce student anxiety about performance, and improve how students receive and use feedback. Drawing together instructors from a variety of departments, we will discuss strategies for implementing ungrading into a variety of course types. During our one-hour panel we will demonstrate the wide applicability of this grading strategy, reflect on the effects that ungrading has on students engagement/learning and discuss our plans for continuing to implement ungrading in our future courses.
