Issues surrounding grading strategies and objectivity often plague both new and experienced instructors. Building effective and reliable assessments is imperative to being a good instructor, yet many instructors never learn how to create useful assessments. While ethics surrounding assessment development and grading can sometimes appear murky, there are often clear-cut decisions and factors that should be considered. This workshop will present different case studies regarding these issues, with answers based on best practices. Participants will also have a chance to share experiences and ask questions.
