What's the Point of Points? Rethinking the Assessment of Student Mathematics Work

Presented by: Douglas Guyette,

Webinar description: Explore how student work can be evaluated holistically without awarding 'points'. The goal is to help students transition from answer-getting toward better communication and problem-solving. Problems with the traditional approach to grading math will be discussed, and an alternative, student-centered evaluation process will be introduced.
