THE GOAL

The Grading Conference will bring together new and experienced practitioners of a variety of grading techniques (standards-based, specifications-based, etc.) to create a community of practice. We will create a space for participants to make connections with each other, to build a strong and supportive grading community that extends beyond the workshop. Participants will learn the “nuts and bolts” of various types of alternatives to traditional grading, exchange ideas with others, and begin planning their own alternatively-graded classes.

New practitioners will learn the basics of different types of alternative grading, begin redesigning their own classes in a supportive atmosphere, and make contacts that will support their continued work. Experienced practitioners will discover new approaches to alternative grading, make new connections, and share their ideas and experience with the community.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

FANTASTIC Conference both in content and technical set up! Absolutely great that all the sessions were recorded and presentation materials will be available afterwards. Slack provided great back channel communication and that intangible personal connection you thought would be missing in an online conference. Conference crafting 😄- a first ! Very enjoyable and now digging into that great reading list. This should be the model for all conferences, in person or online!
