Facilitated by Laura Cruz, Research Professor

Have you ever wondered why we grade the way we do in higher education? In this interactive workshop (based on data collected across Penn State), you will explore emerging alternatives to conventional grading schema. Discover why practices such as specification (spec) grading, mastery grading, and contract grading have become increasingly popular practices in many higher education domains.

Registration will close one hour before the event starts.

Registrants will receive a Zoom link at least one hour before the event.
