Evaluating Student Work
Workshops and Presentations
Conversations about grading and more generally evaluating student work are frequently elements of workshops and presentations on campus.
- Initiative-Specific Workshops - There is information about initiative-specific workshops at the following web pages: Center for Community and Civic Engagement (CCCE), Carleton Interdisciplinary Science and Math Initiative (CISMI), Humanities Center, Quantitative Inquiry Reasoning and Knowledge (QuIRK), and Visualizing the Liberal Arts (Viz).
- Writing Specific Workshops - The Writing Program sponsors December workshops that pay particular attention to evaluating student writing.
- In addition to contacting colleagues in one's own field, the Director of the Perlman Learning and Teaching Center is a senior Carleton faculty member well versed in teaching theories and strategies as well as literature in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). More specifically, the Director of the LTC can help identify specific approaches to evaluating student work such as creating rubrics.
- If you are looking to talk to a colleague specifically about evaluating student writing, Carleton's Director of the Writing Program, Carol Rutz, is a great person to consult.
