Please join us for SLiThEr #43 with Michael Drummond (St. Mary’s College) on November 30 at 4:00pm EST to learn about an adaptive form of specifications grading. Please sign up here.

Have you heard about alternate grading systems such as specifications (specs) grading, but don't think you have the time or energy to remake a whole curriculum? Come hear about a hybrid-points-specs grading system! The hybrid system does not require a complete course redesign, but still integrates standards-based grading practices that promote mastery of material and make grading easier. Implementation and outcomes in general chemistry and inorganic chemistry classes will be discussed.
