I recently attended a workshop on assessment. It made me realize that what I was doing in class was not the best and gave me a few ideas on how to improve it. I have also been reading about experiences of teachers not giving any grades to their students and all this got me thinking about assessment and grades in general : what should be graded? Quizzes and tests? Work done in class, projects, participation, presentations? How do you grade? Do you grade everything? If I give an assignment to students, they work in class and I make sure that they do their work properly...shouldn't the grade at the end be the maximum? Should I grade only chapter tests to make sure that the students master the skills I have been teaching in a specific chapter? I am very confused about all this and would like to hear your opinion and practice regarding assessments and grades.
