Grading and Learning: a Paradox - On Hiring - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Grading and Learning: a Paradox - On Hiring - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Education WTeaching | Scoop.it
I read something recently that said, “By acting as if grading motivates learning, we put both student and faculty energies in the wrong place.” Grades are supposed to assess learning, not be the goal. Students too often see the grade as the thing they go to class for, when they are supposed to go for learning and practice. And it’s the professors’ faults because we hold grades over their heads.
