Fairness in grading is important to teachers and students. I am trying a new technique with the hope of increasing fairness. I have invited members of the Denver/Boulder business community to serve on a “Board of Evaluators” for my consumer behavior class. Later this semester, students will be creating short YouTube presentation on branding. The board, which has a couple of former students on it, will be involved in grading it.
And here they are:
– @lindspanther: Currently in sales at Gnip. Previously held stints at Splick-it and Major League Gaming. CU Alumni. Ignite speaker and marathon runner.
On occasion, they will check in on the class hashtag (i.e., Clashtag): #m3250
