Season 1 – Episode 13: Fair Grading Practices and Online Learning

The COVID-19 pandemic forced faculty, staff, and students to engage with online learning, which has continued to have a lasting impact on higher education. Online and hybrid learning has continued to increase in popularity, even after the transition to online learning during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the increase of learners online, factors such as access, equity, and fairness continue to be a major topic of discussion within the field. Many faculty members might perceive their grading practices to be fair, yet those practices can often times unintentionally reinforce achievement gaps amongst students. Michal Paul, Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Tallahassee Community College, spoke to On Campus with CITI Program about fair grading practices in online learning and how to provide students with a level playing field in an educational environment.
