And I sat there and just watched her sense of self worth and her excitement in the class just decay away right before my eyes. -Robert Talbert When you look at grades as we often use them in a traditional setting, they are much of what we do is under the guise of object what we think is objectivity. -Robert Talbert The biggest thing that's broken about grades is that traditional grading is completely disconnected from the notion of a feedback loop. -Robert Talbert Give helpful feedback that doesn't humiliate the student, affirms their basic dignity as a human being, and highlights what went well. Helpful feedback also highlights what could use some work and invites students to collaborate with you to make it better. -Robert Talbert Reattempts without penalty, that's the closing of the feedback loop. -Robert Talbert Points used for grades are a judgment call that results in a label. -Robert Talbert Resources Grading for Growth: A Guide to Alternative Grading Practices that Promote Authentic Learning and Student Engagement in Higher Education, by David Clark & Robert Talbert Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most (Third Edition), Douglas Stone & Sheila Heen Dignity: Its Essential Role in Resolving Conflict, by Donna Hicks Leading with Dignity: How to Create a Culture That Brings Out the Best in People, by Donna Hicks The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain, by Annie Murphy Paul Robert Talbert’s Sabbatical in Industry with Steelcase The 12-week plan for building courses, by Robert Talbert
