This semester, I was a little overwhelmed by our course enrollment – 25, up from last year’s 15. With no TA assistance, I had to figure out a way to reach my goal of more personal, “conversational” feedback (as I put it in my assessment document) without meeting individually with each student about each assignment. Here at ProfHacker we have written before about grading by voice. And my friend and fellow physicist Andy Rundquist has blogged about implementing voice assessment with his standards based grading methods. I looked at all these methods and put together a system that worked well for this course.
