Part 4: Fall 2016 Labs
Last week’s Active Teaching Lab was about making grading more transparent for students ￼
and more efficient for instructors. Grading online can often be time-consuming and difficult. Beth Fahlberg, from Continuing Studies, shared tips from her online courses, on how to make it quicker and simpler.

- Best practices from Beth’s experience are also available here.
- Test your rubrics before you use them!
- When first starting with rubrics, start simply and openly with students, reserving the latitude to adjust as you learn to refine them.
