PHILOSOPHY OF GRADING AND EVALUATION  J ONATHAN P AUL R OSSING Updated: 20 AUG 2010 I view evaluation as a process that promotes learning through reward and encouragement. I avoid one-shot efforts to regurgitate knowledge that “penalize” students for mistakes. Instead e very assignment is a learning opportunity and the more opportunities you pursue the more that will reflect in your final learning outcomes for the course. Students will only earn points depending on how thoroughly or intently they pursue each learning opportunity. With the exception of the final course grade, I will not assign letter grades to learning components. I invite students to meet me to discuss strategies to enhance your learning. Students motivated primarily by a desire to increase their understanding of the material will find these meetings much more pleasant and productive than those students motivated primarily by a desire merely to raise their final grade .

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
