Event description

Description

There are few things as painful as reading a poorly written student essay, and few things as rewarding as reading a well-crafted response to a writing assignment. Effective design and assessment of student writing can be challenging. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to identify characteristics of an effective writing assignment, design grading criteria and rubrics, assess writing assignments, and provide constructive feedback.

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
• Identify characteristics of an effective writing assignment
• Design grading criteria and rubrics
• Effectively assess writing assignments
• Provide constructive feedback

This workshop may be counted toward the Pedagogy concentration of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative.
