Proposal Abstract

Do you students have lots of questions when they work on your assignments? Or maybe they have few questions, but what they hand in doesn’t always meet your expectations? If either of these scenarios is familiar, this poster presentation is for you! In their poster, Carolyn and Jenna will provide tips and resources for assessment that both fosters and reflects better student learning. With the goal of increasing opportunities for critical thinking, accountability, and autonomy in our students, we will focus specifically on activities in the classroom that improve understanding and metacognitive awareness in relation to assignments; creating assignments with appropriate language, volume of information, and expectations; and giving useful, objective feedback that aligns with the goals in your rubric. Please bring questions about your own assignments with you!
