This week, Matt and Courtney talk about why we need grades at all. Do we? What is more important: grades, or feedback? Both? Neither? Take a listen, and give us feedback! We are on Twitter @plearnmc, Facebook at plearnmc, and our website at plearnmc.com.
Matt and Courtney start a series about grading. We start with a conversation about how we grade courses. We know averaging scores together on particular targets is wrong, but what about averaging families of targets? What are the positives and negatives of this, and what are some do-do's and don't-do's?
