Holistic Scoring: A Quicker and Less Painful Alternative to Traditional Grading: English Brown Bag Series
September 24, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Gainesville, Nesbitt 5105 (Video Teleconference launch site)
Facilitator: Diana Edelman-Young
Traditional essay grading often takes hours and hours and is fraught with frustration and anxiety for the grader. Unfortunately, the time we spend commenting on final drafts of essays is often wasted as students rarely read, much less incorporate, those comments. Holistic scoring is a much quicker method of grading because it considers the essay as a whole product. Scoring essays holistically takes only 2-3 minutes per essay. This workshop will demonstrate the philosophy and methods behind holistic scoring, including the development of rubrics and sample essays. At the end of the session, participants will have an opportunity to score an essay holistically.
