Ungrading: What, Why, and How

Following the publication of Susam Blum’s book Ungrading: Why Rating Students Undermines Learning (2020), many faculty across higher ed have reflected on their grading policies and their inherent tie to learning. Grading practices and techniques range from strict policies, to contract-based grading, to assigning no grades at all. Wherever they find themselves on the continuum, in this episode, we hear Georgetown faculty wrestle with the nuances and complexities of assigning grades, and thoughts about their impact.
