How to Spend Less Time GradingQ&A
Unleash the power of rubrics or feedback sheets: one of my favorite time-saving tools is the feedback sheet. It contains the criteria needed to earn each letter grade. To be more efficient, I use the same rubric for all my students for each topic. Each year, I provide all of my classes with a visual version of this sheet that is student-friendly and discuss with them what it means. I also model for my students how to use this sheet when grading an essay. The rubric is attached to each assessment and I use it to grade each open-ended question (usually an essay).
