Conversations about grades are difficult—particularly if you’re a newer faculty member and you haven’t experienced many of them.
But it is possible to make such conversations constructive—even instructive. This on-demand program, delivered in an innovative format, will show you how.
Having a Conversation About a Challenged Grade is a collaborative-learning course. It illustrates common student grievances about their grades, and provides effective strategies to turn discussions about them in a positive direction.
You will work through specific scenarios—e.g., a student protesting that he worked hard and did not get the grade expected, or that her classmates got better grades for similar work, or that you are simply being subjective.
