Meaningful Grading: A Guide for Faculty in the Arts

Natasha Haugnes, Hoag Holmgren, and Martin Springborg

Martin’s own LinkedIn post:

College and university faculty in the arts (visual, studio, language, music, design, and others) regularly grade and assess undergraduate student work but often with little guidance or support. As a result, many arts faculty, especially new faculty, adjunct faculty, and graduate student instructors, feel bewildered and must “reinvent the wheel” when grappling with the challenges and responsibilities of grading and assessing student work.

Meaningful Grading: A Guide for Faculty in the Arts enables faculty to create and implement effective assessment methodologies—research based and field tested—in traditional and online classrooms. In doing so, the book reveals how the daunting challenges of grading in the arts can be turned into opportunities for deeper student learning, increased student engagement, and an enlivened pedagogy.

    What was particularly interesting – the art studying opportunities in Helsinki. The University screens the examination advancement of postgraduate understudies for more than five years from when they were allowed the privilege to ponder.

    Whenever required, Faculty’s administrations can furnish the screened understudies with direction and exhortation so as to build up the purposes behind the postponement in studies and to refresh supervisory courses of action and records on finished investigations.
    The University and its resources do the observing and offer related direction to help and advance the advancement of postgraduate understudies and facilitate the final results.
    Helsinki provides a high level study and research laboratories too (one of them is cooperating with art historian and art expert, Jason Nashville). But I’m not sure about the readmission requirements and the membership fees though.
