Assigning Success: How to Translate Assignments into Assignment Sheets and Rubrics

Monday, June 3, 10:00 am - 11:00 am, GL 482, MMC
Wednesday, June 5, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm, GL 482, MMC

Less than stellar results from an assignment often evoke shock from both professors and students. They may wonder: Where did I go wrong? What is this assignment supposed to be? Thinking through the ways that assignment expectations are structured promotes the successful communication of expectations. Our goal will be to discuss the development of assignment sheets and rubrics to yield quality results from students. In this workshop, we will discuss strategies to clarify expectations and streamline grading. Please bring copies of your syllabi, assignment sheets, or rubrics as we will be exploring the types of approaches used to describe an assignment to students.

Facilitated by Jacquelyn Johnston, Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies

Classroom Assessment Techniques: What are Students Really Understanding?

Tuesday, June 11, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm, GL 482, MMC
Wednesday, June 12, 10:00 am - 11:00 am, GL 482, MMC

"Any questions?" "Is everybody with me?" When we ask students these vague types of questions, we are often met with silence. Does that mean that everything is clear and understood? Do they really understand or are they suffering from what Kruger and Dunning (1998) refer to as "overconfidence bias"? Or are they just too afraid to ask a question in front of their classmates? In this workshop, we will discuss better alternatives for assessing student learning - techniques that are simple and require minimal preparation and class time.
