What Are Grades For?

Talking About Teaching Lunch

with Amy Grillo

Grades are so much a part of our academic culture that we often don’t ask ourselves what purposes they serve. Are we using them to compare students’ achievements against each other, or are we using them to measure students’ progress towards specific criteria? How do grades affect student motivation and learning? What does research say about the uses and usefulness of grades? Come share your thoughts, experiences and questions about the role of grades in teaching and learning.
